knows about Dr. George Bunting. But did 
vou know that Dr. Bunting's world-wide 
Noxzema business was based largely on sugges- 
tions from others — suggestions in letters from 
grateful users of his product.' 

These suggestions arc clinically tested by doc- 
tors and technicians. Some letters, of course, con- 
tain claims that are over-enthusiastic. But those 
that "test out" successfully are passed on to the 
public, bringing new comfort to men and women 

If you have discovered some new use for Nox- 
zema Medicated Skin Cream . . . some new kind 
of soothing relief it has brought to a skin problem 
of your own, why not tell us about it.' Wouldn't 
you like to have a hand in helping others who are 
suffering from the same condition.' . . . perhaps 
mi/lions of people all over the world.' 

BLEMISHES — Nurse B. A. writes: "I got so 
discouraged with externally-caused blemishes on 
my face that I went to m\ doctor and he advised 
Noxzema. I tried it and was delighted. It helped 
my complexion look softer and smoother in just a 
short time." 

HANDS -Miss M. K. B.. Baltimore, writes: 
'*rni an enthusiastic gardener, and my flowers are 
mj' pride and joy. But somehow I just can't seem 
to wear gloves when I work in the garden. So I 
always rub in a little Noxzema Skin Cream after 
working outdoors, and it keeps my hands won- 
derfullv soft and smooth." 

DRY SKIN— Mrs. D. A., Baltimore, writes: 
"I used to have a lot of trouble with dry skin. My 
skin actually used to get scaly in the winter-time. 
But now I use Noxzema as a makeup foundation, 
;.nd It makes a world of difference in the way my 
skin looks and feels." 

BABY RASH -Mrs. H. H. of Baltimore, 
writes: "My baby had diaper rash, so bad that it 
started bleeding. I tried No.xzema and was de- 
lighted to find it quickly helped heal the rash. " 

BURNING FEET-M. P., Nurse, writes: 
"OiR night my teet burned so badly I was in mis- 
ery. I was putting Noxzema on my hands and I 
decided to try it for my feet. I never felt anything 
so grand . . . just like wading in a cool stream."

Theme For '48 "Silver Threads Among The Black 8C Gold" 

liv Ddiid L. Hriiiham 

General Alumni Secretary 

MOKE than one thousaiul alumni 
joined forces with eleven thou- 
sand University of Maryland students 
in celebrating the 1S>48 Edition of Home- 
coniinjj on the campus of CoUepe Park. 
The theme for the day "Silver Threads 
Amonp the Black 
and Gold" proved 
to be an omen as 
gray hairs were 
added in a thrilling 
game between two 
exceptionally fine 
football squads. 
Maryland won in 
the statistics de- 
partment but was 
barely nosed on the 
scoreboard. The 
game was a real 
climax to a big 
Homecoming Day. 
Alumni began 
their Day with 
morning meetings 

David L. Brigham 

of the various School Alumni Associa- 
tions. These meetings featured the 
election of officers and Committee re- 
ports. Details will be reviewed in a 
later portion of this section. 

An informal luncheon for alumni 
drew nearly one thousand to the Old 
Gym. A surprise visit from Governor 
Lane had been anticipated but was nulli- 
fied by an unavoidable delay which also 
eliminated a word of greeting from 
President Byrd and a welcome from 
Alumni President Arthur I. Bell. Alumni 
are already planning a repeat invitation 
to these three who have contributed so 
much to the educational program of the 
State, the University of Maryland, and 
the Alumni Association. 

Governor Crowns 

Governor Lane reached Griffith Sta- 
dium just prior to the kick-off and per- 
formed the coronation ceremonies as 
Miss Jean Farmer, senior in the College 
of Home Economics was crowned Home- 
coming Queen. She was selected from 
twenty coeds representing sororities, 
dormitories, and women's associations. 
[The football game is described on page 45.1 

To many alumni one of the better 
features of the Day was the Mixer in 
the Dining Hall from 5:30 to 8:30 P. M. 
After an informal supper which included 
a choice of chicken or ham, the majority 
settled down for visits and a real re- 
union with old friends and former class- 
mates. There was dancing too for those 
who had not exhausted their energy in 
their eff'orts to obtain a victory over 
the Blue-Devils of Duke. Response to 
the Mixer was such that it is a must 
for another year. 

Alumni President Bell addressed 
those in attendance for the Mixer and 


In Homecoming Ceremonies at Griffith Stadium, Washington. Governor Lane crowned 
Miss Jean Farmer, 619 Lexington Place, N. E., Washington, D. C, Queen of the University of 
Maryland's Homecoming festivities. The coronation took place before the Maryland-Duke 
University football game. Miss Farmer is a senior in Home Economics, Kappa Delta, 5 ft. 
6 in brunette. (Another picture of Miss Farmer appears on Page 31. i 

explained briefly the work of the Gen- 
eral Alumni Council. He called upon all 
alumni for support of a great Univer- 
sity and asked that they lend a hand to 
make the Alumni Association grow. Dr. 
Bell emphasized the value of the sheep- 
skin which alumni possess in relation to 
the standing of the School from which 
the diplomas were received. 

House decorations came in for favora- 
ble alumni comment. These were de- 
veloped in accordance with the theme 
for the Day. "Silver Threads Among 


the Black and Gold" was chosen since 
the silver represented the 25th annual 
alumni Homecoming Day. The black 
and gold choice, of course, recognized 
our University colors. After a lengthy 
inspection, the judges of decorations 
awarded first place to Sigma Chi Fra- 
ternity, second place went to Alpha Xi 
Delta, and third to Pi Beta Phi. The 
judges were LeRoy Humphrey and 
Perry 0. Wilkinson, members of the 
House of Delegates, and Miss Grace 
Lee, a former Assistant Dean at Welles- 

ley College. The prize winner consisted 
of a full size steam roller constructed 
of wood and steered by a dummy wear- 
inj; U. of Md. colors. This was labeled 
"Tatum's Roller" and paintetl on the 
roller was a well flattened "Blue-Devil." 
rruminent Grads 

Conspicuous among the returning 
graduates, was Dr. R. Sumter Griffith 
of Waynesboro, Virginia, a graduate of 
Maryland Agricultural College in 1880 
and of the Medical School in 188(5. He 
is thought to be the oldest living alum- 
nus of the University. Dr. Griffith 
never misses Commencement exercises 
and states that it is his plan now to 
attend every major alumni function 
scheduled in the years ahead. 

Clifton E. Fuller, Class of '96, and the 
first quarter-back in Maryland football 
history, organized in the fall of 1892, 
returned for his twenty-fifth consecu- 
tive Homecoming. Mr. Fuller is Com- 
missioner of Finance and Revenue for 
the city of Cumberland. 

Another of the always faithful to 
enjoy the Day was Eugene VV. Hodson 
of the Class of 1893, School of Phar- 
macy. A resident of Baltimore, he re- 
called the earlier days of Maryland 
.Athletics and classed them as even more 
rugged than the activities of the present 

From 1897 

Another former star of Maryland 
football history in attendance for the 
game was Grenville Lewis of Mechanics- 
ville. Class of 1897. During his days at 
M. A. C. he served as captain, coach, 
and tackling dummy for the football 
team. One of the brief facts of Mary- 
land history, he was selected as a mem- 
ber of the all time University eleven. 

Colonel Mahlon N. Haines, Class of 
1£96, partic.patcd \u the day's events 
and took a very active part in the Chap- 
ter meeting of Agricultural alumni. He 
called upon members of his group to 
support the alumni publication "MARY- 
LAIs'D" and stated he would personally 
pay the subscription cost for any agri- 
cultural alumnus who did not feel finan- 
cially able to request the magazine. 
Colonel Haines is Chairman of the Gen- 
eral Alumni Committee on Publications 
and Publicity. His home is at York, 
Pennsylvania where he received the 
start that was later to identify him as 
"The Shoe Wizard." 

Dr. H. B. McDonnell of College Park 
and a graduate of the College of Physi- 

cians and Surgeons in 1888 was greeted 
by numerous former students who com- 
pleted courses under his direction dur- 
ing many years of service at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. Dr. Mac served 
the University from 1891 until his re- 
tirement in 1937. He was for many 
years state chemist, head of the Chem- 
istry Department, Dean of Applied 
Science, and Dean of the Chemistry 
Department. He also had an active part 
in the construction of several buildings 
on the campus. 

Baltimore Schools 
Annual meetings of the School Asso- 
ciations for Dentistry, Law, Medicine, 
Nursing and Pharmacy are held during 
Commencement week and therefore no 
special groups assembled for Home- 
coming Day. Informal reunions com- 
pleted the morning program for those 
of these Schools present. 


Meeting in the new Agricultural 
Building the Chapter conducted elec- 
tions for the ensuing year and heard 
detailed Committee reports. In an ex- 
tremely close election four Directors 
were named to the Board for two year 
terms. Reelected was Col. Mahlon N. 
Haines '96, while the new additions were 
G. Merrick Wilson '29 of Centerville, 
Calvin L. Skinner '38 of Easton, and 
Warren E. Tydings '35 of Washington, 
D. C. Elected for a one-year term to 
fill the vacancy left by the resignation 
of P. W. Chichester '21 was Nevin S. 
Baker '43 of Frederick. Other members 
of the Board with another year to serve 
are J. Homer Remsberg '18 of Frederick, 
John Clark '34 of Bel Air and James R. 
Ward of Gaithersburg. Board members 
whose terms expired were W. D. Groff 
'00, Otis Twilly '21 and Parker Mitchell 
'96. The Board is to be organized in the 
immediate future when Chairman Rems- 
berg can be present since it was neces- 
sary for him to miss the annual session. 
John Clark is Vice-Chairman and pre- 
sided for the meeting. Ward is Secre- 
tary of the Chapter. 

Extensive study and effort was evi- 
dent in the five committee reports 
given by their chairmen and including 
Archives — Landon C. Burns, Conserva- 
tion — Xevin S. Baker, Memorial — Dr. 
T. B. Symons, Objectives — Calvin Skin- 
ner, and Teaching, Research and Recog- 
nition — Donald E. Watkins. Special 

reports were given by Mark Wood on 
research recognition and by Dr. John 
Stier on recognition for teaching. A 
motion carried to commence such recog- 
nition with this school year. Final ap- 
proval must come from the Board of 
Directors. A motion also carried to 
present the complete reports of these 
committees in the next issue of "Mary- 
land." Vice-Chairman Clark urged in- 
creased active membership to support 
the work of these committees. 

Col. Haines made a strong appeal for 
support of "Maryland" magazine and 
stressed the need for good news articles 
from agriculture. 

.\rts and Sciences 

Following a morning meeting on Oc- 
tober 16 which included a talk by Acting 
Dean J. Freeman Pyle and Arts and 
Sciences President Arthur B. Hers- 
berger, the following Board for the 
Chapter was announced.

Just to give your voice a lift 

WHEN you make a long 
distance telephone 
call, your voice would soon 
fade out were it not for 
vacuum tube repeaters. 
They give your voice a lift whenever 
needed — carry it clearly from coast 
to coast. 

Vacuum tubes and other electronic 
devices are playing an ever-growing 
part in your Bell telephone service. As 
the manufacturing unit of the Bell Sys- 

tem, Western Electric makes millions 
of these intricate little things. 

To produce them to highest stand- 
ards of precision and at lowest cost, 
Western Electric has just completed 
its new Allentown, Pa., plant — latest 
addition to vast telephone making 
facilities in 18 cities. Now, and in 
the years ahead, this new Western 
Electric plant will help to make 
your Bell telephone service better 
than ever. 

At Weilern /;/ff/r/V'j new Allentown Plant, 
over 2,^00 people work amid condicions 
of almost surgical cleanliness tor a speck 
of dust or trace of perspiration may seri- 
ously impair the quality of electronic 
devices they make! 

To provide such conditions, the entire 
plant is air conditioned. The interior is 
completely sealed off and is slightly pres- 
surized to prevent dust laden outside air 
from seeping in the doors. Temperature 
is maintained year round at 70° to HOo, 
with relative humidity of 40% to 50%. 

Over 40 miles of pipes deliver 1 3 need- 
ed services to working locations. These 
are hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, city gas, 
city water, deionized water, soft water 
(cold, hot, cooling) high pressure air, low 
pressure air, process steam and conden- 
sate return. 

The plant has its own steam generating, 
water softening and gas making plants 
and uses as much electric power as a 
city of 20,000.

Veterans Proved to be Stabilizing Influence in Schools 

THERE will he fewer veterans in 
the coUeijes and universities of the 
United States in 1948-49. Accordinjr to 
expert predictions, the decrease from 
the record veteran enrollment of 1947- 
48 will he around 10 per cent. 

This estimate, puhlished in the Sep- 
temher 25 issue of School ami Society, 
by Charles Iloflf of the University of 
Omaha, has already been supported by 
preliminary registration figures from a 
few of the smaller colleges of the coun- 
try where the numbers of veterans run 
from 10 to 15 per cent lower than last 

Evident Drop Here 

Although the early re>ristration fis- 
ures for veterans at the University of 
Maryland showed a surprisingly near 
appioach to the veteran enrollment for 
last year, it is evident that it will not 
be lonp before the proportion of vet- 
erans will begin to drop rapidly at 
Maryland as well as elsewhere. 

In only a few semesters more, most 
of the veterans at this university will 
be members of the alumni rather than 
members of the student body. Certainly, 
for most veterans now registered, June 
of 1949 or 1950 will signal the end of 
formal university study. Thereafter, 
down the years, these veterans, like 
other former students, will attend com- 
mencements and consider university 
problems as alumni, parents, taxpayers, 
legislators, or members of the board of 

Vets Different? 

How different from other students are 
these veterans? Will they be different 
from other alumni, taxpayers, or re- 
gents in the years to come? 

Studies of differences in scholarship 
between veterans and non-veterans have 
been made in many universities in the 
last four years. In general, they can be 
summarized by saying that veterans are 
older than non-veterans and have a 
small edge in scholarship characteristic 
of any group of older students, that 
veterans are more often married than 
non-veterans and show the same added 
.stability of purpose and attitude com- 
monly displayed by married students, 
and that veterans represent a broader 
cross-section of the population than do 
non-veterans and therefore reflect more 
clearly the sentiments of all the people. 

None of these points, interesting as 
they are, seems to be .so crucial as those 
which relate to the two great counter- 
balancing jobs of universities. These 
are the two great areas in which vet- 
erans have already begun to affect 
American higher education profoundly. 
These are the areas in which veterans 
may influence universities even more 
powerfully in the future. 

Those two jobs sound as though they 
might be opposed to each other some- 
times, but they arc never opposed in a 
good university education.

National Commission for the Defense of 
Democracy through Education. 

One job is that of holding fast to the 
old, and the other is that of reaching 
for the new. A university which fails 
to do both these jobs should not be 
called a university. It could be a train- 
ing center, a group of professional in- 
stitutes, a collection of libraries and 
laboratories, or even a few shops and 
playing fields, and thus perform very 
useful functions, but it would not be a 
university unless it did these two big 
jobs as a single institution. Every uni- 
versity in every year of its history is 
in a continual crisis of performance on 
this level. The educational impact of 
veterans both in their student and in 

their alumni days can best be felt at two points. 

Universities Conservative 

Universities are es.sentially and quite 
properly conservative institutions. To 
be good universities, they have to be 
conservative. They are trustees of the 
past, conservors of a tested culture, and 
transmitters of intellectual tradition. 
How have the veterans helped the uni- 
versities do this conservative part of 
the higher educational task? How can 
they help with this job when they be- 
come alumni, parents of college stu- 
dents, or members of the board of re- 

Universities are just as essentially 
and just as properly innovating institu- 
tions. To be good universities, they have 
to be forward-looking. Often, within 
the fields of their particular activities, 
they have to be the most forward-look- 
ing of all agencies. They are prophets 
of the future, makers and testers of 
daring hypotheses, and builders of new 
and better ways. How have the veterans 
helped the universities perform this 
function, and how will they help with 
this innovating in the future? 

Good Influence 

My own experience with student vet- 
erans leads me to believe that they have 
had and will continue to have a gen- 
erally good influence in improving both 
these functions of the university. Our 
traditional concepts of life and of learn- 
ing need to be tested and criticized by 
men who have been in situations where 
old ideas have been ruthlessly discarded 
as soon as they failed to meet new re- 

The battlefield is the last place a man 
wants to do something just because it is 
novel or hold fast to something just be- 
cause it is sanctioned by tradition. He , 
wants instead to follow a procedure that I 
works; that gets the job done, that ' 
whips the enemy. It is this pragmatic 
attitude that the veteran has often de- 
veloped. It has been his greatest con- 
tribution to the university in the last 
four years. It will be one of his greatest 
contributions to the country in the 


Dean Harold Benjamin of the College 
of Education, University of Maryland, 
was recently elected chairman of the 
National Commission for the Defense of 
Democracy through Education at a 
meeting of the group held at the Na- 
tional Education Association headquar- 
ters in Washington. He succeeds Dean 
Ernest 0. Melby of the College of Edu-

vice chairman of the group, which is a 



One of Ihe most interesting innovations in the recent program of the University of Maryland was the class in outdoor painting 
and sketching at Camp Ritchie, Cascade, Maryland during the six weeks summer school. 

The idea originated with Professor Maurice R. Siegler, former acting head of the art department (shown at the left above), who, with 
the approval of Dr. Harold Benjamin, Dean of the Summer School, introduced it into the summer program. 

It required considerable effort and imagination to work out the project and find just the right place that would serve for such a 
purpose. Among other things, it was important that it should be within the means of the students. Camp Ritchie was the answer. It 
is the state guard camp and Colonel Leland Reckord, the Commandant, showed his readiness to co-operate with the University by plac- 
ing the facilities of the camp at the disposal of the group. 

The picture above shows a Head Sketch Class with Marion Bahrman, of Waynesboro, Pa., as model. 

Cascade is high in the mountains of Blue Ridge Summit where the beautiful scenery proved an excellent challenge to the young 
artists. There is a beautiful lake for bathing and boating as well as painting, and there is every opportunity for a delightful vacation 
as well as a profitable course of study. 

In addition to the outdoor class in head and figure drawing and painting which Professor Siegler taught, a class in landscape 
painting and composition was conducted by Professor Herman Maril, a member of the Art Staff. 

The remarkable progress which the students made in their drawing and painting in the brief six weeks of the course attested to 
the serious work done by both students and faculty, and to the stimulus of the ideal surroundings in which the classes were conducted.

Preiident, Alumni Council 

AS we approach the tiid of the first 
year in which your Alumni Coun- 
cil has been in existence we believe it 
is in order to i)resent a summary of our 
activities to the genei-al alumni. 

Particulai' eflForts have been piven to 
making the "Maryland Magazine" an 
outstanding college publication and for 
securing for it the broadest possible 
circulation among the general alumni. 
We are happy to report that the circula- 
tion has been substantially increased 
and we believe that we have laid the 
foundation for a publication that will 
steadily improve not only its general 
set-up but its reader interest. Part of 
this plan includes the appointments of 
editors from each school alumni group, 
so that each issue will contain news of 
special interest to the members of 
these groups. 

Particular attention has also been 
given to setting up an adequate scholar- 
ship program. It is believed that the 
Alumni should give its especial atten- 
tion to the scholarship program: 

A committee has been appointed 
from the council to make a thorough 
study of the scholarship program 
and to develop recommendations as 
to the types of scholarships to be 
offered and methods of raising 
funds. This committee will investi- 
gate the desirability of establishing 
a scholarship program on behalf of 
the Alumni Association and will 
present definite recommendations 
for both the nature and scope of the 

These two activities are considered 
the major responsibility of the Alumni 
Association at the present time. In 
addition, however, emphasis is being 
placed on the formation of a number of 
alumni clubs throughout the state and 
in the larger cities of the country. The 
possibilities of such a program are fur- 
ther emphasized by the extremely suc- 
cessful presentation of Charlie Keller 
Day in Yankee Stadium by the Alumni 
Club of Greater New York, and the fine 
progress made by Cumberland Club in 
developing an organization. 

All alumni who have an interest in 
the formation of a club in their area 
are requested to so advise the Alumni 
Association and in addition we are ask- 
ing all possible help in bringing this 
proposal into being. 

We are off to a fine start and all 
schools of the University now have ac- 
tive Alumni Associations which are the 
foundation for our general alumni 
effort. We ask that each of you give 
real active and wholehearted support 
to these Associations and to the over-all 
program. Your suggestions will be both 
appreciated and carefully considered. 



Col. Harland C. Griswold pictured above 
who retired from the Army and his post ai 
Professor of Military Science and Tactics 
several months ago has returned to the Uni- 
versity of Maryland in the role of Dean 
of the College of Military Science, Physical 
Education and Recreation, a post he had 
held under a temporary arrangement since 

Griswold, a veteran of 30 years service 
through both World Wars, came to the Uni- 
versity of Maryland in December, 1941, dur- 
ing an accentuated defense program as as- 
sistant PMS&T under Col. R. E. Wiser. In 
August 1943 he succeeded Wiser both as 
PMS&T and Acting Dean of the College of 
Military Science. 

No permanent head was named for the 
college, and Griswold's retirement from the 
Army in 1948 created a double vacancy. His 
work for the Army and University had 
earned him the coveted Army Commenda- 
tion Medal and he became the logical pros- 
pect for appointment as the head of this 
growing college. 

With five years personal experience in his 
new position, Griswold expressed belief that 
few difficulties will be encountered in pro- 
ducing smooth operation from the college, 
regardless of this year's swollen enrollment. 


The Arts and Sciences Board of Di- 
rectors has laid plans for a buffet 
supper on October 15, which will be the 
initial step in launching a major under- 
taking on the part of this Chapter.

have been asked to participate in the 
program by alumni President Arthur 
B. Hersberger. Tom Holmes, '24, prin- 
cipal of Woodrow Wilson High School 
in Washington, D. C. has been named 
Program Chairman. Details of the event 
will be found in the Homecoming news.

gence Officer of the First Marine Di- 
vision, during operations against 
enemy Japanese forces on Peleliu and 
Ngesebus, Palau Islands, from 15 
September to 20 October 1944. 
Through his intelligent planning 
prior to the landing and throughout 
the execution phase of the operation, 
Lieutenant Colonel Scott gained vital 
enemy information and, by his proper 
evaluation and dissemination and his 
employment of every possible method 
of inducing the enemy to surrender, 
contributed materially to the success 
of the operation. His professional 
ability and devotion to duty were in 
keeping with the highest traditions of 
the United States Naval Service." 
Lieutenant Colonel Scott is authorized 
to wear the Combat "V" 

For the President. 
Secretary of the Navy. 
In forwarding the citation General 
C. B. Gates, Commandant of the Marine 
Corps, wrote to Colonel Scott, 

"I wish to express my gratification 
upon the recognition of your meritorious 

service during operations against enemy 
Japanese forces on Peleliu and Ngese- 
bus, Palau Islands, from 15 September 
to 20 October 1944, with the United 
States Marine Corps, as evidenced by 
the award to you of the Bronze Star 
Medal with citation by the President of 
the United States. 

"Be assured of my deep appreciation 
of your devotion to duty and gallant 
action which were in keeping with the 
highest traditions of the United States 
Marine Corps." 


Paul Chmar, '43, Arts and Sciences, a 
resident of Baltimore, has just returned 
on a thirty day furlough following 
twenty months of service as Assistant 
Military Attache to the U. S. Embassy 
in Warsaw, Poland. He \%'ill return to 
this position in the immediate future. 
Captain Chmar described Poland as a 
big flat plain where agriculture pre- 
dominates. He stated the food there is 
the best in Europe but is available only 
to those whose incomes are above the 
average. Farming is all done by hand, 
and methods are at least fifty years 
behind the United States. The basic 
diet is potatoes and more potatoes with 
both clothing and fuel in short supply. 
Warsaw, which was seventy percent 
destroyed during World War II. is now 
under extensive reconstruction. 

Decorations earned by Captain 
Chmar, who served as a Comjiany Com- 
mander with the 80th Infantry Division, 
include the Distinguished Service Cross, 
Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart 
with two clusters. Combat Infantiy 
Badge, and the Presidential Unit Cita- 
tion. In addition he received a battle- 
field promotion to Captain, and partici- 
pated in the campaigns of France, 
Luxembourg, and Germany.

J. Henuird Wells, Stale's .Attorney 
for Hiiltiniore City, and a grHduate of 
the University of Maryland I-aw School, 
has a family background of University 
of Maryland association of winch few 
men in the State can boast. 

The University's Medical School was 
founded in 1807, and Mr. Well's great 
grandfather, Dr. Richard Wells, was 
among the members of the medical pro- 
fession who collaborated in organizing 
the old Medical College of Maryland, 
which was the beginning of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. 

In 1836, Dr. Richard Well's son, Dr. 
Thomas W. Wells, was graduated from 
the Medical School. 

In 1867, two of Dr. Thomas W. Wells' 
sons, one of them the State's Attorney's 
own father. Dr. Richard C. Wells, were 
graduated from the Medical School. 

In 1896, Mr. Well's brother, William 
D. Wells, was graduated in medicine, 
and in 1941, John B. Wells, Mr. Well's 
son, also took his degree in medicine. 

Another brother of Mr. Wells, Dr. 
Charles J. Wells, was graduated from 
the University's School of Dentistry, 
while still another brother, Walter I. 
Wells, is a graduate of the School of 

In other words, beginning with the 
foundation of the University, practical- 
ly all the members of the Wells family 
have been in the University as students 
and have afterward made their marks 
in their professions. 

"Bernie" Wells, as he is now affec- 
tionately known to his friends, says 
that, "The members of our family feel 
a very warm interest in their Alma 
Mater, and ai'e deeply concerned with 
its operation and the things that affect 

It is a matter of great pride to Mr. 
Wells that the University has honored 
one or more members of his family in 
every generation since its foundation. 


Dr. Charles Herbert Best, co-discover- 
er of insulin with Frederick G. Banting 
in 1921, was the speaker at ceremonies 
at the University of Maryland's Bressler 
Library, Baltimore, at which a painting 
of the late Dr. John Jacob Abel was 

Dr. Paul D. Lamson of Vanderbilt 
University, long an associate of Dr. 

Maryland man from away back when. 

Abel's when he was making pharmaco- 
logical history at the Johns Hopkins 
Medical School, talked on, "Professor 
Abel As I Knew Him." 

A large group of distinguished scien- 
tists and educators were jiresent at the 
unveiling of the portrait, which shows 
Di-. Abel at the moment when, in his 
laboratory in Baltimore, he was obtain- 
ing the crystals of insulin from the 
Banting-Best extract. 

The portrait was presented to the de- 
partment of pharmacology of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland School of Medicine 
by Dr. H. A. B. Dunning, who has also 
presented two other paintings previ- 
ously representing discoveries in the 
fields of research in which the depart- 
ment is engaged. 

The portrait was unveiled by Betty 
Dunning, Dr. Dunning's granddaughter. 

Dr. Joseph C. Krantz, Jr., head of the 
department, which for 15 years has been 
concentrating in the fields of anaes- 
thesia, digitalis and heart disease and 
carbohydrate metabolism, presided. 

Dr. Harry C. Byrd, president of the 
University, welcomed the guests. 

Dr. Best delivered a scientific talk on 
"Insulin and Carbohydrate Metabolism." 

Dr. Dunning made a brief talk as the 
painting was unveiled.

Inter-American Relations In Engineering 

INTER-AMERICAN educational and 
pioft'ssional relations in Engineer- 
irij; have made Kieater progress in the 
last three years than ever before in the 
history of our i)rofession. Closer rela- 
tions and better understanding among 
the engineers and 
engineering educa- 
tors of this hemi- 
sphere have come 
about in recent 
years as a result 
of thiee major fac- 
tors : ( 1 ) the close 
cooperation, during 
the last war, be- 
tween our country 
and the other 
American Repub- 
lics; (2) the recog- 
nition in those 
countries of the 
need for technical 
and industrial de- 
Dean Steinberg velopment to estab- 
lish economic stability; and (3) the 
greater manifestation by the engineer- 
ing profession in this country of a sin- 
cere interest in the problems of our 
colleagues to the south and an eager- 
ness on our part to assist in their solu- 

It has been my privilege and pleasure 
to be closely identified with this pro- 
gressive movement of establishing good- 
will and better understanding with our 
l)rofessional brethren in the other 
American Republics. In 1945, under 
the auspices of our Department of 
State, the first survey of engineering 
education in Latin America was made 
and contacts established with the en- 
gineering societies and engineering 
schools in the leading countries. Since 
then the flow of information and of in- 
dividuals to and from Latin America 
has continued in ever-increasing tempo 
so that many tangible benefits have re- 
sulted of great value to the engineering 
fraternity of the entire hemisphere. 

Important Cooperation 

Briefly here are some of the impor- 
tant cooperative activities undertaken 
during the past three years: 

The Committee on International Re- 
lations of the Engineers Joint Council 
appointed a Commission on Latin 
.America. Through the joint cooperation 
of this Commission, of the Division of 
Engineering and Industrial Research of 
the National Research Council, and of 
the Inter-American Development Com- 
mission, a fund of $(5,000 was made 
available which enabled us to issue dur- 
ing the past year a new quarterly pub- 
lication called Adelautos dc lugenieria 
(Progress in Engineering), which was 
distributed free of cost to the members 
of the major Latin American engineer- 
ing societies and to the libraries of their 
engineering schools and their research 
institutes. Each issue of this publica-

University oi Maryland 

tion, consisting of 1,500 copies, con- 
tained about .'50 carefully selected arti- 
cles from the current journals of our 
major national engineering societies 
and allied publications. The selections 
were made by an Editorial Board com- 
posed of the editors of the national en- 
gineering societies which have member- 
ship on the Engineers Joint Council and 
the editor of Inyeuierin Internacional, 
the Spanish language McGraw-Hill pub- 
lication, who served as Chairman. The 
articles in Adelantos were in both Eng- 
lish and Spanish and were selected with 
a view to the interests and needs of the 
engineering profession in Latin Ameri- 
ca. The response to this publication has 
been so gratifying that the Editorial 
Board is now working on a plan for the 
continuation of the journal on a self- 
supporting basis. 


Through the courtesy of the Division 
of Engineering and Industrial Research 
of the National Research Council, we 
were able to distribute to all the en- 
gineering schools and research insti- 
tutes in Latin America, a copy of the 
latest issue of the extensive annotated 
bibliography of Scientific, Medical and 
Technical Books published in the United 
States of America, 1930-ii. 

Through the courtesy of the Engi- 
neer's Council for Professional Develop- 
ment, we distributed lists of the ac- 
credited engineering schools in the 
United States for the guidance of en- 
gineering educational administrators 
throughout Latin America. 

Typical lists of textbooks used in 
our engineering schools were supplied 
to all Deans of Engineering in Latin 

Exchange of Teachers 

The exchange of engineering profes- 
sors was promoted, though on a limited 
.scale. Thus far, of necessity, the ex- 
change has been only one way, that is. 
from the United States to the other 
American Republics. 

Close cooperation has been main- 
tained and courtesies extended to Latin 
American engineering and technical 
missions that have come to this country, 
by planning their itineraries and ar- 
ranging their visits to our engineering 
schools and industrial plants; also, 
similarly for distinguished engineers 
and educators who have come here as 
visitors or as guests of the Department 
of State in the operation of its cultural 
program between the Americas. 

We are cooperating with Stanford 
L'niversity in its publication of the 
several volumes of Who's Who in Latin 
America, by service on its Advisory 


Board, in reference to the members of 
the engineering profession in those 

To meet the desire of many of the 
faculties of the Latin American engi- 
neering .schools to adopt our textbooks, 
an extensive translation program has 
recently been undertaken by the text- 
book publishers in this country. 

Clcser Links 

To comply with the requests of a 
number of Deans of Latin American 
engineering schools, the Committee on 
Engineering Schools of the Engineer's 
Council for Professional Development 
recently appointed a sub-committee to 
consider the accrediting of engineering 
schools in the other American Republics. 

The American Society for Engineer- 
ing Education has recently appointed 
a Committee on International Relations, 
which should serve to link together 
more closely the engineering educators 
of the hemisphere. 

Excellent work in the promotion of 
closer relations has been done recently 
by specialized engineering groups in 
holding inter-American gatherings, such 
as the Pan American Mining Congress, 
the Inter-American Congress of Sani- 
tary Engineering, and others whose in- 
terests are in highways, in railroads, 
in petroleum and in other engineering 

Mention must also be made of a num- 
ber of our associates who have recently 
visited with our neighbors to the south 
and cemented the bonds of friendship 
and understanding. .Among these are 
R. M. Gates. Past President of the 
American Society of Mechanical Engi- 
neers; J. S. Thompson, Vice-Chairman 
of the Board of McGraw-Hill Book 
Company and Treasurer of this Society; 
E. P. Hamilton, President of John 
Wiley & Sons; and Lloyd Hughlett, 
Managing Editor of Ingenieria Inter- 
nacional. Would that more of our en- 
gineers and educators could visit with 
our southern colleagues in their home- 
lands to learn at first hand of the many 
educational and professional problems 
that will require the closest inter- 
American cooperation for their solution. 

Rio in '49 

Probably the most impoi-tant outcome 
of the joint efforts of the engineering 
l)rofession in this country and in Latin 
America \%'ill be the first Pan American 
Engineering Congress which is sched- 
uled to convene in Rio de Janeiro, 
Brazil, in 1949. This Congress will 
offer the first opportunity to lay the 
foundation for the solution of the many 
international engineering problems, 
both educational and professional, of 
interest and importance to the engi- 
neering profession in all of the coun- 
tries of this hemisphere. The Engineers 
Joint Council is sponsoring the pro-

posed Congress jointly with the Federa- 
tion of South American Associations of 
Engineering (USAI). A discussion 
meeting on the proposal was held in 
Lima, Peru, last spring, and a prelimi- 
nary meeting for planning the Congress 
will be held in Bogota, Colombia, in 
November of this year. It is the hope 
of the Latin American engineers that 
out of these meetings there may eventu- 
ally result a Pan American Federation 
of Engineering Associations, to include 
the national engineering societies of all 
the Americas. 

At the request of the Department of 
State, I submitted a pi-oposal for com- 
pleting the survey of Engineering Edu- 
cation in Latin America which was 
undertaken in 1945. Due to time limita- 
tions, that trip covered only twelve of 
the twenty other American Republics. 
Many requests have since come from 
the engineering and educational insti- 
tutions in the other eight countries for 
their inclusion in this survey. Accord- 
ingly, it is possible that a visit may be 
made to the Caribbean group of coun- 
tries, namely, Guatemala, Honduras, El 
Salvador, Nicaragua, Dominican Re- 
public and Haiti ; and then in the fall, 
the two remaining countries in the 
heart of South America, namely, Bo- 
livia and Paraguay, may be visited, 
thereby making the survey complete. 

The promotion of better inter-Ameri- 
can educational and professional rela- 
tions in Engineering is not much dif- 
ferent from that of promoting goodwill 
between any groups, be they ordinary 
citizens, faculty members, or even na- 

tions. All it takes is a willingness to be 
a good neighbor and to deal with others 
with patience and with understanding. 
Our efforts will be rewarded by that 
friendship and fellowship between peo- 
ples which is the only firm foundation 
of lasting peace between nations.

John W. Magruder, extension agronomist 
at the University of Maryland for the past 10 
years, pictured above, has been appointed 
county agent leader for the state Extension 
Service, Dr. T. B. Symons. director of the 
Service, has announced. 

Magruder has been with the Extension 
Service since he first became county agri- 
cultural agent in Howard County in 1928. 
Previous to that, he was a teacher of voca- 
tional-agriculture in the Lisbon and West 
Friendship high schools in Howard County 
for three years. He was born and reared on 
a dairy farm near Gaithersburg in Mont- 
gomery County. While there, he was active 
in 4-H club projects and in vocational- 
agriculture vrork. 

Magruder first moved to the state office in 
College Park in 1935 as assistant director of 
the Rural Rehabilitation Program. Following 
that, he served for a few months in early 
1938 as Extension soil conservationist before 
becoming extension agronomist. 

In commenting upon his appointment. Dr. 
Symons said. "Mr. Magruder. during his 10 
years as extension agronomist, has become 
well known among farmers of the state for 
his practical approach to farm problems. 
Those of us wrorking vrith him have been 
impressed with his ability to organize facts 
and to use them in surmounting agricultural 
problems. We are very fortunate to secure 
such a capable man." 

Magruder is a member of the American 
Society of Agronomists, of the Maryland 
Grange, Epsilon Sigma Phi, honorary Exten- 
sion fraternity, and is secretary-treasurer of 
the Maryland Crop Improvement Associa- 
tion. He has occupied the latter position for 
the past 10 years. 

The county agent leader position was held 
formerly by the late E. I. Oswald before he 
became Assistant Director of Extension. In 
more recent years Paul E. Nystrom. who has 
oeen on leave at Harvard for the past year, 
vas county agent leader before taking charge 
of the war emergency farm labor program. 
In his new duties, Mr. Magruder will work 
closely with county agents in Maryland's 23 
counties to help them carry out effective 
education programs with farmers. The latest 
methods and information developed through 
research in the state and Federal agricultural 
programs will be explained to farmers with 
emphasis on local adaptation. 


Here are extracts from an interesting 
letter received from Raymond V. Leiprh- 
ty, Maryland Alumnus on University of 
Kentucky Faculty. 

"I like the serious articles you are 
publishing. No one has too much knowl- 
edge even in their own field of en- 
deavor. Dr. Symons had some pood 
points in his article on consolidation of 
agricultural agencies. I disagree with 
his conclusions, I being in the applica- 
tion end of soil conserving, he being in 

the administrative end. But I am glad 
to get his ideas. Also articles such as 
this get "Maryland" spread around a 
bit for this article was read by others 
in our office here. 

"There isn't much I am not fond of 
reading in "Maryland." There isn't 
enough news about alumni I know, but 
that isn't your fault, but the fault of 
alumni, like myself, who don't send in 
the material. It is with others as with 
me, what we are doing leally doesn't 
add up to too much when we tell others, 
at least not in the way of iteivs. 

"I am still handling the con.servation 
survey work for Western Kentucky, 
which includes 13 counties, 7 of them 
with districts, one about to become a 
district, and have plenty of work ahead 
of me. You might mention to those in 
Agriculture that the Soil Con.servation 
Service is crying for soil scientists, and 
has always needed more than they had, 
at least since 1940 when I joined them. 
Here in Kentucky the State Soil Scien- 
tist is looking for four more, and re- 
gardless of bills in Congress, all of 
them indicate that farm planning or 
conservation survey work will continue 
as a basis for sound farm planning. 

"Kentucky's Board of Soil and Water 
Conservation is sponsoring twelve 
"Conservation Days." Every one of us 
should attend one of these days, farmer 
or not. In fact it isn't the farmer who 
will suffer if ever conserving land is 
forgotten, but people like the bulk of 
the graduates from Maryland; those 
not working directly on the land. 

"Then there was a Conservation 
Workshop held at Murray State College 
just for school teachers. 

"I'm down here in basketball's home 
as one of the assistant coaches of bas- 
ketball can tell you (he's a graduate of 
Murray). If you want basketball play- 
ers, stop off in Brewers, just about 12 
miles away. They had the champion- 
ship team at the State H. S. Tourna- 
ment. And that town is merely a curve 
in the road with a few houses scattered 
around a school building. 

"Those are a few of the things I 
could write about from here. Not many 
of them would add to anyone's knowl- 
edge. Fewer .still could be called news, 
but anyway, I've made you work for 
those two extra bucks (reading this) 
and too. you have my renewal of sub- 
scription to Maryhnid. Keep up the 
good work. I'm backing you. Good luck 
to you, too. 


John Mahoney. of the State Depart- 
ment of Markets, has been gathering 
information concerning the truck re- 
ceipts in the i)roduce markets of Balti- 
more. He reports that information 
gathered so far indicates that more 
than 50 percent of the produce is ar- 
riving in the city by trucks. 

Information which he is gathering is 
made available to producers, whole- 
salers, and retailers and others inter- 
ested in the Baltimore markets. It en- 
ables them to better estimate the 
amount of produce available and helps 
them prepare to handle surpluses that 
may arise. 


Stanley P. Stabler, of Spencerville. Mary- 
land, pictured above, has been appointed as 
Extension agronomist to take the position 
vacated by John W. Magruder who recently 
became county agent leader for the state Ex- 
tension Service, Albin O. Kuhn, head of the 
Agronomy Department, has announced. 
Stabler is a native of Montgomery County 
and was reared on a general farm in that 
area. For the past 11 years he has been em- 
ployed as the farm superintendent for the 
University of Maryland Experiment Station 
and has had charge of the agronomy section 
of that farm since 1938. He has devoted 
special attention to the variety tests on corn 
and grain and to the production of founda- 
tion seed stocks. Two other projects on 
which he has worked are: (1) the search for 
short rotations to increase feed production 
on livestock farms, and (2) a corn fertiliza- 
tion study in which heavy rates of fertiliza- 
tion are being compared with the standard 
practices on Maryland farms. 

Stabler graduated from Sherwood high 
school at Sandy Spring and later from the 
University of Maryland in 1929. From that 
time until 1937 he operated the home farm 
in partnership with a brother producing 
hogs, baby beeves, hot-house lambs, and 
poultry. He is a member of the Alpha Ki 
Rho Social fraternity and Alpha Zeta, honor- 
ary agricultural fraternity. 

In his new duties as extension agronomist. 
Stabler will work with county agents in each 
of the Maryland counties to help farmers 
with agronomic problenis. It will be his job 
to pass on to county agents and farmers new 
techniques and new information learned 
through research.

The first two-day banker-farmer con- 
ference in Maryland was held at the 
University of Maryland in College Park 
in September. The purpose of the meet- 
ing, which was sponsored by the Fed- 
eral Reserve Bank of Richmond, the Ex- 
tension Service, and the State Bankers' 
Association, was to give an opportunity 
for workers in the agricultural field to 
discuss their common problems. 

General topics for the four half-day 
sessions were "Bank Farm Service De- 
partments," "Working with Rural 
Youth," "The Economics of Maryland 
Agriculture" and "Soil Conservation." 
Among the speakers to address the 
meeting were farmers, bankers, county 
agents, vocational agriculture teachers, 
and representatives of youth organiza- 

Featured speakers were Edward A. 
Wayne, vice-president. Federal Reserve 
Bank of Richmond; T. Howard Duckett, 
past-president of the Maryland Bank- 
ers' Association as well as Dr. H. C. 
Byrd, president of the University. 


Col. Mahlon N. Haines of York, 
Pennsylvania, known to many as, "The 
Shoe Wizard," now plans to compete 
with the old woman who lived in a shoe. 
A member of the Class of '96 and of 
the Agricultural Alumni Board of Di- 
rectors, he will soon begin construction 
of a modern house in the shape of a 
shoe. The house to be located on one 
of his farms known as "Haines Plaines" 
will contain a small hall, living room, 
bedroom and bath in the toe of the shoe 
with the remainder devoted to a kitchen, 
dining alcove, another bedroom and a 
shower bath. On top of the shoe there 
is to be a terrace while the arch of the 
shoe will serve as a garage. The Haines 
Shoe House is to belong to old couples. 
Each week a new couple is to enjoy a 
period of luxury including the cooking 
and serving of meals, a new automobile 
and chauffeur to conduct them on tours, 
an opportunity to attend the theaters 
and churches and, in reality, to realize 
for a week the dream of a lifetime at 
the expense of, "The Shoe Wizard."

• May we call your attention to the BUCK SQUARE SPACE- 
SAVER milk bottles, which were originated and introduced by 
us eight years ago, the use of which has now become general 
throughout the country? 

• Through the cooperation of other milk bottle manufacturers 
with us, this patented bottle has been made available to every 
member of the dairy industry without hindrance of any kind. 

• The many savings in crate and carton materials, storage and 
shipping space and weight, and most of all, the saving in re- 
frigerated space in dairies, stores and homes, are contributions 
which we are glad to have made to the dairy industry.

where he served as a cattle judge, J. 
Homer Remsberg ari-anged for the 
shipment of forty pure bred Holstein 
calves to that country. They were be- 
lieved to be the largest number ever 
to be shipped in one plane load from the 
United States. The calves came from 
herds of the Western shore of Mary- 
land, in large part owned by alumni of 
the College of Agriculture. The ship- 
ment included animals from the herds 
of Cecil K. Holter, Jefferson; Edward 
F. Holter, Middletown; Frank G. Rems-

weighed over four hundred fifty pounds, 
were tied twenty on a side in the 
plane. The destination was Guayaquil,

By Bill Roberts 

When my graiuifathor was a boy, 
there was always plenty of wood for 
the cook stove and the fireplace and 
plenty of wild game and fish for the 
table. The need for fertilizers in order 
to grow crops was unheard of. Less 
than sixteen per cent of the land area 
was used for farm land. Horses and 
mules provided most of the necessary 
power during his youth. However, 
many radical changes have taken place 
since he was a boy. Today, approxi- 
mately sixty per cent of our land is be- 
ing farmed. During this time, our popu- 
lation has increased from twenty-three 
million people to over one hundred and 
forty million people. 

It has been said that nature builds 
and man destroys. Conservation is a 
verv old idea. Conservation to me is

the use of all natural resources in such 
a way as to benefit as many persons as 
possible for as long as possible. There 
are seven principal classes of natural 
lesources; sunshine, air, water, soil, 
minerals, forest, and wildlife. The chief 
objectives of conservation are: (1) to 
protect, maintain, and prevent waste of 
natural resources; (2) to improve natu- 
ral resources by making them more 
productive of benefits; (3) to insure a 
distribution of the benefits which flow 
from natural resources among all those 
now living, and the protection of these 
resources for future generations. To me 
conservation is a complex problem with 
many interrelated parts. It means dif- 
ferent things to different people, but 
affects us all directly or indirectly. 
Without conservation, we would be un- 
able to meet new conditions and new 
developments adequately. 

In its broadest meaning, conservation 
deals with the pieservation and develop- 
ment of all forms of public values; but 
in the usual sense it deals with natural 
resources and it is so treated here. 
From the standpoint of conservation, 
natural resources are divided into two 
main groups: (1) Agricultural conser- 
vation, which aims primarily to pre- 
serve and — in some cases — to build up 
the wealth that produces the growth; 
(2) mineral conservation, which aims 
primarily to manage and to prevent the 
waste of resources that dwindle with 

Conservation does not necessarily 
mean using less today. It does mean 
wasting less. It is a matter of good 
management practices. Good conserva- 
tion practices frequently are no more 
costly to apply than destructive ones. 
Sometimes they cost less. 

As I see it, this problem of conser- 
vation is of such importance to the wel- 
fare of all people that everyone must 
do something about it. I think that 
soils, water, forests and wildlife, under 
proper protection and planning, could 
be maintained, and even increased or 
improved, if methods known to be 
practical were used. 

To me, conservation of natural re- 
sources means freedom from fear of 
want and world conflict in the future, 
greater wealth and opportunities for 
education and culture, a higher standard 
of living, and greater happiness for all.

Erosion is public enemy number one. 
but erosion cannot get in its "dirty 
work" without our help. Careless cut- 
ting of forests, had farming, and over- 
grazing lost us one thousand acres of 
soil a year from 1900 to 19,30. Our land 
is going away faster than it can be re- 
placed. We are the guilty ones.

soil. Contouring keeps soil on sloping 
land. Furrows are plowed, row crops

planted across and around the slope, 
following the shape of the land. Each 
furrow is a tiny dam. Steep slopes are 

Brush dams across gullies hold back 
water and silt. Ponds store up water 
drained from too-wet land. They raise 
the water-level, add fish to the diet, and 
afford refuges for wild life. 

What does the conservation of our 
natural resources mean to me? It 
means my life. The trees would be 
destroyed and we would have no homes. 
The crops would be destroyed and we 
would have no food. We would have no 
clothing, shelter, food, health, prosperi- 
ty, freedom — and finally, life itself. 

Fortunately, it is not too late. We 
can halt erosion's work. We can even 
repair some of the damage. We have 
already begun our fight for food and 

By Richard L. Harrison 

Surging rivers, rich mines, dense for- 
ests, and good soil; these are the po- 
tential wealth of a country. If they are 
carefully used and protected, a country 
will remain prosperous; otherwise, 
through careless exploitation and waste- 
ful use, a country becomes poor, left 
with only memories of a lavish past and 
prospects of a destitute future. Con- 
servation is not only an obligation to 
future citizens, but a definite necessity 
tor the growth or even the survival of 
this or any country. 

Conservation of natural resources 
means many things to me. It means 
scientific farming methods, intelligent 
irrigation, contour plowing, fighting 
erosion, sensible use of America's for- 
ests, reforestation to assure a bountiful 
supply of lumber in the years to come. 
It means making the best use of all 
available mineral and petroleum de- 
posits; proper tapping of our powerful

livers to provide the tremendous 
amount of energy needed to operate 
this nation's many industries. 

Conservation also means protection 
for wildlife, proper game laws, restock- 
ing of fishing streams, and stopping- 
pollution of these streams. Fishermen 
who are greedy and selfish sometimes 
use illegal methods of taking fish, oys- 
ters and crabs, leaving the waters de- 
pleted and discouraging normal propa- 
gation. On the land, hunters who do 
not respect the closed-season laws are 
responsible for the decrease in game 
birds and animals. Farmers take money 
crops off the same soil year after year, 
and too many of them do nothing to 
restore its fertility. Many allow their 
richest asset, the top soil, to blow or 
wash away, instead of learning and us- 
ing modern methods of conservation 
which government extension services 
are willing and eager to help effect. 
Wooded areas are stripped of magnifi- 
cent trees for many years before re- 
forestation is started to replenish the 

The cost of such ignorance or care- 
lessness comes high. Five years of tak- 
ing one kind of crop off the same land 
costs the value of that land for future 
farming. Unchecked erosion is even 
more devastating, since soil washed 
away, is gone beyond hope of refertili- 
zation. One match lighted, then care- 
lessly tossed away, may cost acres and 
acres of prime forest and take the lives 
of countless wild creatures which made 
their homes in the once proud and 
beautiful wooded areas. 

In short, America's natural resources 
are ours to use, but not to use up, or to 
destroy with carelessness. A country's 
natural resources are its basis for com- 
merce, its present wealth, its promise 
of future prosperity. They must be 
tended faithfully, cherished by all who 
use them, and guarded jealously, for 
they are the life blood of a nation.

Three Members (omplete Term On 
Kducation's Hoard of Directors 

HOMECOMING Day 1948 found 
three members of the Board of 
Directors of the Education Chapter re- 
tirinK from the Hoard when the term 
of office expired for Mrs. Portia M. 
P^ilbert, Mrs. Lucile Laws Smith and 
Harry E. HasslinKer. Their replace- 
ments, announced elsewhere in this 
issue, were elected at the Annual Meet- 
ing of the Chapter, held the morning of 
October 1(5. 

Mrs. Filbert of the Class of '24 is 
probably best known for the loyality 
which she and hu.sband Ed have shown 
over the years for Homecoming days 
and other alumni reunions. Their 
daughter, Portia Filbert Bowers is the 
first child whose Father and Mother 
were fjraduates of the University to be 
graduated from Maryland. She re- 
ceived her decree in 1947 in the College 
of Arts and Sciences. Mrs. Filbert 
has another daughter. 

With the departure from office of 
Mrs. Lucile Laws Smith, the Education 
Chapter and the Alumni Association in 
general have lost the services of one of 
the most active workers, for she has 
not only been the first Secretary- 
Treasurer of the Chapter, but paitici- 
pated actively in the establishment of 
the Alumni Council of the University 
of Md. Alumni Association and was 
one of the Chapter's three representa- 
tives on that body. Lucile, as we all 
like to call her and she won't mind 
dropping the "Mrs." for this write-up. 
had an early indoctrination in alumni 
affairs, for while an undergraduate, she 
frequently assisted "Rosey" Pollock 
(then Alumni Secretary) in running 
the Alumni Office. One of the most 
popular girls on the campus, for she 
has a most likeable personality, she 
was a member of Alpha Omicron Pi, the 
Pan-Hellenic Council, Y.W.C.A. in ad- 
dition to many other extra-curricular 
activities. Upon graduation in 1936, 
she became "Swede" Eppley's right arm 
in the Athletic Office. Her ever willing 
spirit was again demonstrated, when 
during World War II Lucile again 
took a position with University, while 
her husband was overseas. She acted 
as Alumni Secretary for about a year 
and also served as Secretary to the 
President of the University for a simi- 
lar period of time. 

Married to Bob Smith '42, one of 
Maryland's former football stars who 
compiled an outstanding record while 
in the Service and is now an instructor 
and the football coach for Richard 
Montgomery High School, Rockville, 
Lucile is playiTig the stellar role of 
housewife for hubby Bob and a cute 
little daughter Jane at 4()04 Harvard 
Rd., College Park. Md. 

The first President of the Education 
Chapter, Harry E. Hasslinger is the 
third member of the Board to complete 
the term in office this Homecoming. 

Harry, who included among his under- 
graduate activities membership in 
.Aljjha Tau Omega and several honorary 
fraternities, presidency of Omicron 
Delta Kappa, and Editor of the 19.']2 
Reveille (the yearbook, now called the 
Terrapin), has also been rather active 
in alumni affairs during the past few 
years. In 1946 he was elected Vice- 
Chairman of the Board of Directors of 
the University of Md. Alumni Asso- 
ciation (College Paik Schools) and as- 
sisted in the reorganization of the 
Alumni Association which has taken 
place during the past two years. He 
was Chairman of the Steering Commit- 
tee which was appointed to plan and 
activate the Education Chanter and was 
elected to the Board at the Homecoming 
Meeting in 1947. As President of the 
Chapter, he has also served as one of 
our three representatives on the Alumni 

Another campus romance was cul- 
minated in 1936 when Harry and Char- 
lotte Farnham '.34 were married. They 
are living with their two children, Carol 
Anne and Mark, at 4615 Fordham Rd., 
College Park, Md. Harry, who is em- 
ploved by the Veterans Administration 
in Washington is also President of the 
XIII Corps Association, a national or- 
ganization of veterans who served over- 
seas with that Army unit. 

The Education Alumni extend best 
wishes to these three retiring members 
of the Board and appreciate the con- 
tribution they have made to the prog- 
ress attained by the Education Chapter 
during its first year. It is hoped that 
they will maintain their interest in 
alumni affairs during the years to come. 

Education Alumni Award Plaque To He 
Dedicated This Fall 

The trophy symbolizing the Education 
Alumni Award took its final step toward 
reality when the Board of Directors of 
the Education Chapter. University of 
Maryland Alumni Association, in its 
meeting on September 26, 1948, adopted 
the recommendations of its Education 
Award Committee. The Award, which 
typifies the interest the Education 
Alumni holds for the undergraduates of 
the College, will be in the form of a 
large plaque, to be made of mahogany 
or a similar hardwood, with all the in-

scriptions to be carved thereon. It was 
the feeling of the Board that such an 
award would be moie effective than the 
usual cup or metal shield. 

The honor of being the first recipients 
of this award went to Miss Marilyn Mae 
Beissig and Mr. Harry Bonk, both of 
the Class of 1948. Announcement of 
their attainment was made at the first 
Annual Banquet of the Education 
Alumni which was held at the Univer- 
sity Dining Hall just shortly before the 
1948 Graduation Week. At this func- 
tion, held each year by the Education 
Alumni in honor of the Seniors of the 
College, these two outstanding members 
of the Graduating Class of the College 
of Education were presented certificates 
and a gift of books in recognition of 
their scholastic and extra-curricular 
achievements. Notice was also given 
that their names would be inscribed 
upon a permanent award which was to 
be erected in the College of Education 
Bldg. Sub.sequent recipients of this 
award wiW be selected annually by a 
joint Alumni-Faculty Committee and 
the selections will be announced each 
year at the Alumni Banquet. 

The plaque is now being manufac- 
tured and will be dedicated this Fall. 
Upon completion the award will be 
placed in the first floor corridor of the 
Education Bldg. (formerly the Ag- 
Administration and later Science Bldg.) , 
facing the main entrance. In such a 
location it can be viewed by each stu- 
dent as he enters the building. Since 
each year the name of the outstanding 
Senior man and coed student of the Col- 
lege of Education will be carved upon 
this award, the Alumni hope that the 
plaque will serve as an inspiration to- 
ward greater achievements and accom- 
plishments by the undergraduates of 
the College and as a closer bond of 
union and interest between the alumni 
and the students of the College of Edu- 

Education Alumni Establish Scholar- 
ship Fund 

Another page was added to the annals 
of the Education Chapter, when the 
Board of Directors, at its September 
meeting, voted unanimously to establish 
a scholarship fund. The honor of mak- 
ing the initial donation to this fund goes 
to Mrs. Mildred Smith Jones '22. a 
member of the Board. This new under- 
taking of the Education Alumni will be 
kno\\^^ as the Scholarship Fund of the 
Education Chapter, University of Mary- 
land Alumni Association, and a separate 
bank account has been opened in that 

Final standards for the use of the 
Fund were not established by the Board 
at the meeting, but a committee, con- 
sisting of ilrs. Mildred S. Jones. Mr. 
Milton Lumsden and Mr. James Whar- 
ton, was appointed to draw up detailed 
criteria and submit its recommendations 
to the Board at its next meeting. It was 
the general opinion of those present, 
however, that the fund was not to be an 
"athletic scholarship" and should be

The Scholarship Fund will be inde- 
pendent of any established by the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Alumni Associa- 
tion or the University and its custody 
of course will be vested in the Board of 
Directors of the Education Chapter and 
not the overall Alumni Council. It is 
believed that this endeavor of the Edu- 
cation Chapter is another way that the 
Alumni can express their interest in 
the undergraduates of the College of 
Education and, at the same time, assist 
some deservinji- students of that College 
who might otherwise be unable to finish 
their education. 

Subsequent gifts to the Scholarship 
Fund have already been received and it 
is hoped that all Education Alumni will 
want to share in this worthy cause by 
sending in their contributions at an 
early date. Checks should be made 
payable to the Scholarship Fund, Edu- 
cation Chapter and mailed c/o Mr. 
David Brigham, Ex. Secy., University 
of Md. Alumni Association, University 
of Md., College Park, Md. Remember 
that even though individually we may 
not be able to assist some worthy stu- 
dent, nevertheless, collectively by send- 
ing in our gifts, regardless of the 
amount, we can do much to further the 
career of a needy student in the College 
of Education. So, don't put it off, mail 
your contribution today.

fT'OR two ex-GI's and their wives at 
' the University of Maryland, 
graduation in June 1948 was a whole- 
family affair. 

John Boyle and his bride of nine 
months, Mary, were both anions the 
winners of decrees, 
and so were both 
Holmes Hawkins, 
Jr., and his wife, 
Louise, an old mar- 
ried couple of a full 
year's standinK- 

And they do say 
it was quite a year, 
the last one durinR 
which they were 
wedded couples as 
well as students. 

Of course, as stu- 
dents they expected 
the usual quota of 
8 o'clock classes, 
Mr. McDonald term papers, and 
grumpy professors. 

But neither as students nor as newly- 
weds did the expect such 
problems as g:etting Be.ssie, the goat, 
milked regularly. 

Nor did the Boyles foresee the trouble 
a loose-jointed old coupe could give, or 
the five weeks of study-enforced separa- 
tion they were in for almost as soon as 
they were married. 

Long Drive 

During the year the Hawkinses 
rented an apartment on the 450-acre 
farm of the bridegroom's father near 
Glen Burnie. The 45-mile daily drive 
to school and back that this meant, 
along with a cranky tractor that often 
stalled out on the 450 acres with Hap — 
that's Holmes — aboard and already late, 
are two of the things they'll remember 
along with Bessie. 

The Boyles lived in a veterans' hous- 
ing project only a mile from the Uni- 
versity. Nevertheless, besides the jalopy 
that sometimes refused to take them 
that one mile, and the separation caused 
by the bride's Home Economics studies 


John and Mary Boyle. "Mr. and Mrs.' 
Craduales, Class of '48 

Jack had a night job at the post office 
that comjilicated their year. 

It didn't take the two husbands long 
to find out that the $90 a month paid 
veteians by the Government wouldn't 
support a family. That was when Hap 
signed up to work for his father, 
started a small garden, and bought a 
few chickens and Bessie. 

This was all right with Louise until 
she drew the job of holding Bessie's 
head while Hap did the milking. This 
job she finally wiggled out of by train- 
ing Bessie to remain still. "It just 
wasn't worth it," she says, "especially 
since I can't stand goat's milk." 

Good Students 

Scholastically, the Hawkinses fared 
very well through marriage. Louise, 
who already was on the honor roll, 
raised her average from just below an 
A to a straight A. Hap, who complained 
that Louise "studies all the time, and 
then had me doing the same," was just 
coasting along with passing C grades 
when Louise took over. Then he soai'ed 
into the B bracket. 

Hap and Louise spent most of their 
spare time playing bridge, golf, and 
baseball, with Louise an active partici- 
pant in all three. Hap, who was a 
varsity pitcher at Maryland, now hurls 
for the Glen Burnie entry in the county 
league. Since he had no time left for 
practice with the team, he got Louise to 
serve as catcher and kept in shape by 
throwing whenever they had a spare 
hour or two. 

The Hawkinses met at the university 
and were married in June of 1947 
after a campus romance that lasted 
over a year. 

Hap majored in agricultural econom- 
ics and farm management. Louise, who 
is from Peoria, 111., received her degree 
in political science and was an honor 
student, being elected to Mortar Board, 
the highest honor a woman can gain in 
American colleges. 

In Post Office 

The Boyles's money problems were 
solved by Jack's taking a job in the 
Hyattsville Post Office from 7 P.M. to 
midnight, Monday through Friday, but 
that started a long string of difficulties, 
one of which nearly landed him in jail. 

With Jack working nights and Mary 
spending five weeks of days and nights 
at the home economics practice house — 
required procedure for home ec. stu- 
dents — about the only time the two 
could see each other was after Jack 
finished work. 

One night, while calling for his wife 
after midnight, Jack was apprehended 
by the campus police as a prowler. Only 
a call to the house mother, a verification 
by Mary that he was her husband, and 
fifteen minutes of fast talking saved 
him from a night in the old pokey. 

"It was during that stay in the prac- 
tice house, though," says Mary, "that I 
discovered I married the right man. I 
got away unexpectedly one night and 
arrived home at dinnertime. 

"There was Jack, preparing veal 
buds and making the most delicious 


Mr. and Mrs. Holmes Hawkins. 
Married Seniors 

gravy. From then on he had a tough 
time talking his way out of helping 
with the meals." 

Football Tackle 

Jack, a 210-pound former football 
tackle, went along with Mary's home 
economics studies until dressmaking 
came up. He balked when his wife, who 
designs and makes most of her own 
clothes, tried using him as a model for 
leveling hems. 

In such emergencies, Mary called on 
one of the many other student-veteran 
families in the housing project and had 
a model in a minute. "That's one thing 
I miss now," she says, "the people 
around there were so neighborly." 

The Boyles's recreation hours, which 
were always in the afternoon, were 
spent playing bridge or golf with these 

The Boyles's chief headache was their 
car, which, they declare, "not once" got 
them to class on time. "We never 
knew," says Jack, "whether we'd be 
walking or riding that mile to school." 

Mary's favorite story concerns the 
time she came home and found Jack in 
the middle of the apartment, with the 
innards of the carburetor strewn all 
around him. .After three hours of futile 
labor, Jack, with the aid of a neighbor, 
discovered that a wet wire, and not the 
carburetor at all, had caused the 

•Met On Campus 

Like the Hawkinses, the Boyles met 
on the campus and courted for about a 
year before being married. "We were 
just sort of dating," explains Mary; 
"then we had a class in Shakespeare 
together. That was where the romance 
really began to flourish." 

Jack is from Philadelphia and came 
to the University of Maryland on a 
football scholarship. He majored in 
English and business. 

After graduation, both couples agreed 
that it had been fun. but no amount of 
urging could make them say that they'd 
like to do it again, not even without 
Bessie and the jalopy. 



The Melancholy Guy, 

the Tiny Terrapin and the Canary. 

• • • • 

Wmj'K'HE all bellied up to the 
^'^ inahosrany down in .Julius 
Schiaubonziehei's mucilajje parlor when 
in walks The Melancholy Guy and tries 
to put the bite on old Julius for a copule 
of shots of zam-zani water. Julius gives 
The Melancholy Guy the double negative 
and tells him to jjo on from there to 
elsewhere, and also hence. 

However, The Melancholy Guy does 
not mosey toward the egress. Instead he 
sounds off, "You will not order me from 
this underslung dug-out of yours after 
you have seen my act, on account of," 
he says, "my act will attract a lot of 
people to this lousy emporium of yours " 

"This," continues The Melancholy 
Guy, "is my act." 

Thereupon he reaches into his pocket 
and comes up with a piano that meas- 
ures no more than three inches from 
starboard to port. Next he hauls out a 
tiny stool no more than an inch tall. 
He spins the top of the stool, dives into 
his pocket again, and comes up with a 
tiny terrapin not over two inches tall. 
He sets the terp on the stool and com- 
mands, "Play for 'em, Crisfield!" The 
terrapin bangs the tiny piano and gives 
out with "Mississippi Mud" and slips 
from that into Brahms "Wiegenlied." 
By this time there is a sizable mob 
around and about and business is pick- 
ing up — but fast. The Melancholy Guy 
has all the refreshments he cai'es for 
when, suddenly, he announces, "That's 
enough for this afternoon. Now I'll take 
the little guy home, get him some chow 
and a little snooze. This act is only a 
preliminary. Tonight I'll bring in the 
other act. Then you'll REALLY see some- 

That evening old Julius Schrauben- 
zieher's joint is packed to the gunwhales 
awaiting the return of The Melancholy 
Guy. He arrives on time, aces up to 
the mahogany, again unbends the little 
piano, the little stool and Crisfield, the 
little terrapin. However, then The 
Melancholy Guy reaches into his inside 
coat pocket and produces a canary 

measuring not over an inch fioni bow 
to stern. 

The whole act The Melancholy Guy 
sets up on the mahogany doesn't come 
half as tall as the glass of brew a well 
dressed doll parks alongside Crisfield's 
tiny piano. 

He sets the canary on to|) of the 
little piano. The terrapin tinkles off an 
introduction on the piano, swings into 
"Galway Bay" and the canary sings to 
the music. What I mean the canary not 
only sings notes. He sings words, the 
beautiful words of "Galway Bay." 

By now the place is in an uproar of 
applause when a swell dressed stranger 
taps The Melancholy Guy on the 
shoulder and makes with, "I'll give you 
five thousand bucks for the act." 

"The act," replies The Melancholy 
Guy, "is not for sale." 

"Fifty thousand," says the stranger. 

"Not for sale," adamantly replies The 
Melancholy Guy. 

"Fifty thousand," says the stranger. 

"I'm taking in the act," says The 
Melancholy Guy, sweeping terrapin, 
canary, piano and stool into his pockets. 

"The act is not for sale," insists The 
Melancholy Guy, "however, I appi-eciate 
that you are offering me heavyweight 
dough for it!" 

"Why not sell it?" insists the 

"Look!", roais The Melancholy Guy, 
"do you want me to get locked up for 
obtaining money under false pretenses? 
The act is a fake. That canary can't 
sing a lick. Not a note. The terrapin is 
a i^entriloquist!" 

From behind the mahogany old Julius 
Schraubenzieher opines, "Vot dot feller 
Valt Disney couldt do vit a siduation 
like diss!" 


Sweet potato growers are reminded 
that experiments conducted by the 
University of Maryland show that 
Wettable Spergon will give good con- 
trol of seed bed diseases without in- 
juring sprout production. This chem- 
ical will also prevent the rotting which 
has been a problem when cut potatoes 
were bedded. Growers wanting full in- 
formation about the use of Wettable 
Spergon should get in touch with their 
county agent or write the Extension 
Service, University of Maryland.

Newcomers to Home Economics 

Home Economics welcomed six new 
members to its staff this fall. 

Agnes Neylan, who was on the staff 
from 1942-1945, returned to the foods 
department, bubbling over with inter- 
esting experiences of her visit to 35 
foreign countries during a 14-month 
trip around the world. Before this she 
taught at Marvmount College and 

Louise Burke came back to the 
campus to be resident adviser in the 
Home Management House and to teach 
in the department of home and institu- 
tion management. Since graduation in 
'46, she has been dietitian for Howard 
D. John.son Co. at Graduate Hall. 
Nurses Building and Sisters College at 
Catholic University, and akso for Chesa- 
peake and Potomac Telephone Company 
in Washington. 

Another Alumna, Mrs. James H. 
Peers, became associated with the foods 
department as instructor in experimen- 
tal foods and food research. Mrs. Peers 
leceived her bachelor's degree from 


McGill University in Montreal and has 
worked for the Agricultural Extension 
Service in Nova Scotia and has taught 
in Ohio and at Maryland. Mrs. Peers 
shares her husband's enthusiasm for 
lesearch; he is pathologist for the Na- 
tional Institute of Health. 

Mrs. Helen E. Houston is teaching 
clothing construction. Mrs. Houston did 
undergraduate work at Drury College 
in Missouri and almost immediately be- 
came a homemaker. While her husband 
was in seivice in Woild War II, she 
entered University of Maryland for 
graduate work in textiles and clothing. 
Mrs. Jeanne Whistle Beatty, from 
Arkansas, came to teach part-time in 
the Textile and Clothing Department 
and to work on a research study con- 
cerning the serviceability of percale. 
The project is under the Research 
Marketing Act in cooperation with the 
Bureau of Human Nutrition and Home 
Economics. Maryland was chosen along 
with Michigan State, Kansas State and 
Washington State for this study. Mrs. 
Beatty did her undergraduate work at 
Blue Mountain College in Mississippi, 
and her graduate work at the Univer- 
sity of Tennessee. 

A newcomer to the foods and nutri- 
tion department is Mrs. Mabel Sidell 
Spencer. Mrs. Spencer came directly 
from Parkersburg, West Virginia, 
where she was county supervisor of 
home economics education. Previously, 
she had been off campus teacher-trainer 
for Marshall College, had taught nutri- 
tion in the in-service teacher training 
program of Glenville College, had super- 
vised agricultural extension work in 
Wirt County, and had served as presi- 
dent of the West Virginia division of 
the American Vocational Association. 
She is the mother of four delightful 
daughters, one of whom is a sophomore 
in the College of Home Economics. 

Summer '48 with Home Ec. Faculty 

Two weddings were June highlights 
among faculty members. 

Mary Sesson married Jack Briscoe 
and is now living in Prince Frederick. 
She gave up her work here in order to 
teach nearer home. 

Gordon Lawson married Connie Hud- 
ler in Detroit. Later in the summer both 
took courses at Cranbrook Academy of 
Art. Mrs. Law.son concentrated on 
metalry, principally jewelry, and tem- 
pera and oil painting, while Mr. Lawson 
studied stoneware bodies, and glazes and 
metalry. In this last he made 
several pieces of flat silver for their 
new home. 

Busy People 

Summer school and workshops claim- 
ed the attention of several of the 

George Cuneo of the practical art de- 
partment attended Teachers College, 
Columbia U., to take a studio course in 
lithography and a class in contemporary 
art. Mr. Cuneo said that he particularly 
enjoyed the latter because it emphasized 
the importance of contemporary art in 
the history of art and the influence of 
the modern artist in his attempt to 
establish new aesthetic values in archi- 
ecture, city planning and advertising. 

Harriet l-'rionu-l 
Harriet Frionu-l attciuioil a dothinjr 
const riK-tion workshop in Cunilu'rland 
and a seminar for colle^re teachers of 
textiles and clothing at Syracuse l'. 
At the workshop a new speed-up tech- 
niciue of jiai'i^idit construction was 
used; this was patterned after methods 
used by quality ready-to-wear manufac- 
turing firms. The seminar was con- 
cerned with productio!!, distribution and 
consumption relationships in textiles 
and clothinj;-. Miss Friemel stated that 
the course was particularly valuable 
due to the participation of chemists, 
desitrners, textile technolofiists and 
fashion writers from the industry; also 
there were trips to designers' show- 
rooms, garment manufacturing plants, 
yarn producers pilot plant, purchasing 
offices, a commercial pattern plant and 
a fashion school. 

Emily Akin 

Mrs. Emily Akin spent a week at Ohio 
State attending' a symposium on mole- 
cular structure and spectroscopy. Mrs. 
Akin explained that there is a need for 
research in the application of infrared 
spectroscopy to textile fibers, fabrics, 
finishes and textile analysis. Later, 
Mrs. Akin worked in the field of textile 
microscopy at the Institute of Textile 
Technology in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

Summer jobs elsewhere were held by 
two people in the department of home 
and institution management. 

Isabelle Tomberlin spent eight weeks 
as dietitian at a boys' camp in the 
Pocono Mountains. 

Jane Crow taught nutrition to a 
group of 105 pre-clinical nurses at the 
University of Connecticut. 

Dean Mount at A.H.E.A. 

Dean Marie Mount as Treasurer of 
the American Home Economics Associa- 
tion has served on the Association's 
Executive Board for two years. 

Florence Mason of the Home Eco- 
nomics Extension Service, Jane Crow of 
the Department of Home and Institu- 
tion Management, and Miss Mount at- 
tended the annual meeting of this asso- 
ciation in Minneapolis during June. 

Crow Flies West 

Miss Jane Crow toured several out- 
standing mid-western universities and 
other institutions in June and July to 
observe their facilities in the fields of 
home management and household equip- 
ment. The campuses visited were the 
Universities of Wisconsin, Minnesota, 
Illinois and Purdue, and also Iowa State 
and Michigan State College. 

In Chicago and Minneapolis Miss 
Crow visited manufacturers of house- 
hold equipment and equipment testing 
laboratories, including the Foley Mfg. 
Co., Admiral Corp., Consolidated Edison 
Co., Peoples Gas, and Sears Roebuck 
testing laboratories. 

Mitchell Replaces McFarland 

Faye Mitchell has recently been 
named head of the Department of 
Textiles and Clothing in the College of 
Home Economics to replace Mrs. Frieda 
McFarland who retired last February. 
Mrs. McFarland is living in College 

Park and is busy with women's club 
work and othei- connuunity activities. 

Miss Mitchell has l)een a meniber of 
the statr since 1!)40. She did her under- 
giaduate woik at the State Ti'achi'rs 
College in Springfield, Missouri. She 
received her M.A. from Teachers Col- 
lege, Columbia, and has done further 
study at New York University. Her

THE ladies attendinjr the Rural 
Women's Summer Course at the 
University of Maryland were assembled 
in the hij; Armory buildinjj- The pro- 
gram included community sinjiinu. 

Throujrh the open windows issued the 
inspiiinfr music and lyrics of "Glory! 
Glory! Hallelujah!", the Battle Hymn 
of the Republic. 

It was written in 1861. That was a 
\onn time ajjo. Yet here it was. Every- 
body knew the words. Eighty-seven 
years after it was written people still 
sing in with feelin>j and enthusiasm. 

One wonders whether, 87 years from 
World War I, that would be in A.D. 
2005, or 87 years from World War II, 
which would be 2033, any one will still 
remember the drivel that passed for 
the war songs of World Wars I and II. 

Neither in World War I nor World 
War II did the victors banish war. The 
mission failed. The boys who foujjht 
died in vain. Even Tin Pan Alley with 
its raucous and jazzy tintinabulation 
struck out. In World War I the best 
we could turn out was tinseled whoop- 
de-doo like "Over There" and in World 
War II somebody resurrected and pol- 
ished up an imafjinary incident from 
far byjjone days. "Praise the Lord and 
Pass the Ammunition!". 

Songs that last are songs that have 
meaning, thought and vision! 

For World War II, for instance, the 
Battle Hymn of the Republic would 
still have been good and far better than 
anything attempted by writers of today. 

The Battle Hymn was composed in 
1861 by Julia Waid Howe, a native of 
New York City, who had written many 
philosophical essays. 

On a visit to Washington, D. C. she 
was at the Willard Hotel. All day and 
all night long lines of Union troops 
passed down Pennsylvania Avenue. 
Mrs. Howe, then 42 years of age, sat 
down and wrote. She took the then 
popular melody to which the words 
of "John Brown's Body Lies Moulder- 
ing In the Grave" were sung and wrote, 
to match the music, the insjiii'ing and 
lasting words of the Battle Hymn. Read 
them over and you'll appreciate why 
they are still sung today as they were 
by the Rural Women at the University 
of Maryland, by school childien the 
country over and why they would have 
served for World War II oi- any other 
righteous war. 

Julia Ward Howe pictured a "war" 
foi' you! War with its inspired service 
and sacrifice, its heartaches, and trage- 
dies. There is the appeal to the Al- 

mighty pleading the justice of the 
causes for which men died. 

Julia Ward Howe gives you the trag- 
edy and sudden death of the terrible 
swift sword. She catches the picture of 
the hundreds of camps, with their dim 
and flaring lamps. 

The call for troops is there with the 
plea, "Be swift, my soul, to answer 
Him, be jubilant my feet," followed by 
the "burnished rows of steel." 

And finally she catches the ideals of 
the tall, gaunt and lonely man of the 
White House and the tragedy for both 
North and South that prevented him 
from carrying out his plans "with mal- 
lice toward none; with charity for all; 
with firmness in the right, as God gives 
us to see the right, let us strive on to 
finish the work we are in; to bind up 
the nation's wounds; to care for him 
who shall have bore the battle, and for 
his widow, and his orphan — to do all 
which may achieve and cherish a ju^t 
and a lasting peace among ourselves, 
and with all nations." 

Our war between the States was one 
that should never have happened and 
would not have happened in this day 
and age. But it was a heroic, bitter 
and hard fought war. after which 
American victor and American van- 
quished shook hands, and entered into 
a lasting peace among ourselves. 

The little and humble 42 year old 
lady in black, looking out from the 
balcony of the old Willard Hotel, gave 
us a song that has lasted. She showed 
up the modern song writers of two 
World Wars by penning simple, beauti- 
ful and inspired verse that will be sung 
by Americans for all time just as it 
was sung that day by the ladies in the 
University armory. 

In order to write a song that will 
stand the test of time you've got to 
"feel it inside." Very likely that's some- 
thing the little lady of 1861 had and 
that modern Tin Pan Alley sadly lacked. 
You have to "feel" it when you can give 
the world a lasting song like this one: 

Mine eyex have seen the glory of the 

co)m'n(/ of the Lord; 
He is trampling out the vintage where 

the grapes of wrath are stored; 
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of 

his terrible swift ficord. 

I have seen Him in the watch-tires of a 

hundred circling camps; 
Then have builded Him an altar in the 

Evening dews and damps; 
I ran read His righteous sentence by the 

dim and flaring lamps. 
His day is marching on. 


/ have read a fiery gospel icrit in bur- 

nifihed rows of steel; 
"As ye deal with my contemners, so 

with you my grace shall deal; 
Let the Hero, bom of woman, crush the 

serpent with His heel. 
Since God is marching on." 

He has sounded forth the trumpet, that 
shall never call retreat; 

He is sifting out the hearts of men be- 
fore his judgment seat; 

Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! 
lie jubilant my feet! 

Our God is marching on. 

In the beauty of the lilies, Christ was 
born across the sea. 

With a glory in His bosom that trans- 
figures you and me; 

As He died to make men holy, let us die 
to make men free. 

While God is marching on. 


In editing a magazine or newspaper 
there is always a need for "shorts," 
those little items to fill the holes when 
a page does not "break out even." So 
to fill this spot here we give you a short 
that is a short. It concerns the question 
"Should bare-legged men be tolerated 
in Baltimore?" 

Some of the city's nattier business- 
men (names and income taxes with- 
held) were asked whether they would 
wear shorts downtown. 

Seventy per cent — i. e., seven — of the 
men questioned stated that they 
wouldn't be seen dead in shorts;" twenty 
per cent said that they "wouldn't mind 
being seen dead in shorts." but pre- 
ferred to be seen alive in them, and ten 
per cent pointed out that he always 
wore shorts downtown. 

"But," he added, fingering his sus- 
penders, "I never forget to wear pants 
over them." 


"Autocracy," said old Fisher Ames of 
New England 112 years ago, "is like a 
merchantman. She sails out of the har- 
bor with pennants flying, in security 
and elation. But by and by she strikes 
a reef and down she goes." "Democra- 
cy," said he, "is like a raft. You never 
sink, but damn it, your feet are always 
in the water." 


".\iiy man who does not want his wife 
to have the same educational back- 
ground as his, is not mature," states 
Dr. Eugene Link, marriage counselor 
at University of Denver.

Bill Guckeyson, University of Maryland's 
all-lime, all-sports greatest athlete, who, as 
an Army Air Force pilot, did not return 
from a mission over enemy territory in 
World War II. 


Allen Bowers, in an editorial in The 
Diamondbnck urges that Maryland's 
new stadium be named "Bill Guckeyson 
Memorial Stadium." 

Writes Bowers, "We feel that there 
are persons among the alumni who 
might be interested in the new stadium's 
name. We feel that every student on 
the campus should be interested. 

"Members of the class of 1937 can 
skip the next few paragraphs. We're 
going to tell why we selected Bill 
Guckeyson's name to go on a memorial 
to Maryland's war victims. You already 

"In May 1944, Bill Guckeyson's bomber 
was shot down over Germany. Pilot 
Guckeyson bailed out. He joined the 
thousands of young Americans who died 
in World War II. Bill Guckeyson was a 
war hero. 

"But Bill Guckeyson was more than 
a war hero. 

"He was a hero in peace. We could 
wi'ite pages on his heroics on every 
athletic field which he chose to tread. 
But the hero in Bill Guckeyson went 
much deeper than the Sunday morning 

"In four years of being a star in four 
sports at Maryland, Bill Guckeyson 
never became a hero to himself. He was 
graduated in 1937 with the same quiet 
unassuming manner with which he had 

"But to everybody but himself. Bill 
Guckeyson was a hero. 

"Bill had never played football before 
entering college. He played before our 
age of specialists. But were Bill Guckey- 
son playing football today, he'd be a 
specialist. He would out-specialize our 
specialists at their specialty. He could 
do everything. 

"He had blazing speed and crunching 
power. He punted long, high, and ac- 
curately. He was a superb passer. He 
blocked viciously, and few runners es- 
caped his deadly tackles. 

".\l linii's Hill (iiickeyson's feats wore 
iieai' unlielievabii-. 

"In his junioi' yt-ar hi- punted 75 yards 
into the wind and got otf a 7r)-yar(l 
((uick kick against Florida. Both set u|> 
touchdowns, lie ran 50 yards and 90 
yards for touchdowns to heat George- 
town, 12-(!. And over the season he 
gained a total of over t>00 yards in kick 
exchanges with his opponents. 

"He got better in 193(). Me made two 
t)(i-yard dashes from scrimmage to beat 
Richmond, 12-0. He kicked an 80-yard 
punt against the Spiders and a 78-yai(l 
hoot againt (Jeorgetown. In that season 
he gained (585 yards in 114 running 

"Bill (iuckeyson was All-State for 
three years, All-Conference and All- 
Southern in 1935 and 193fi, and All- 
American alternate in his senior year. 

"That's only one-fourth of the story. 

"He i)layed track, baseball, and 
basketball. In two seasons of track he 
scored 213 points with the shot, discus, 
and javelin. He still holds the Univer- 
sity record for the javelin with a throw 
of 208 feet, five inches. 

"He played baseball for one season, 
combining it with his track work, and 
hit .320. He would have made any team 
in the Conference, and won his "M" two 
years. When Guckeyson was graduated 
from Maryland, he entered West Point. 
He starred for Army in track, basket- 
ball, baseball, hockey, and soccer. 

"Maryland needs a memorial to its 
war dead. We don't think there could 
be a more fitting tribute than the Bill 
Guckeyson Memorial Stadium. 

"Iowa named its football stadium the 
Nile Kinnick Stadium after its greatest 
football player, who also was killed in 
war service. Bill Guckeyson was not 
only Maryland's greatest football play- 
er, he was Maryland's greatest athlete. 

"When the new stadium is finally 
ready, and Maryland plays its first 
game there, we'd like to see a lot of 
things happen. We'd like to see a monu- 
ment at the main gate, with a bronze 
tablet containing the names of Mary- 
land students and alumni who died in 
the war. 

"We'd like to see Bill Guckeyson's 
family there. His teammates and class- 
mates. His West Point pals and his 
neighborhood friends. 

"And we'd like most of all to hear 
Dr. H. C. Byrd make a talk dedicating 
the Bill Guckeyson Memorial Stadium, 
permanent memorial to Maryland's war

Hullister Mcmuriul 

IN the Spiiiijr of r.»4o, the Nuisi's' 
Alumnae Association matic it known 
that they wished to establish a memorial 
in honor of Louise Marjraiet HoUister, 
Class of 19:59, who died on the thirty- 
first of AuKust at Suva, Fiji Islands. 
Miss Hollister was serving with the 
United States Army Geneial Hospital 
No. 142, a University of Maryland Unit. 
Up to date, many members of the Hos- 
pital Unit No. 142. the staff of the Uni- 
versity Hospital, and the Nurses' 
Alumnae Association have contributed 
both willingly and K^'nerously. 

Last May the Alumnae Association 
decided that the Memoiial should be in 
the form of furnishinjrs for the Alumnae 
Room in the proi)osed new Nurses' 
Home. In order to swell funds for this 
Memorial, a benefit dance will be held 
by the Nurses' Alumnae Association at 
the Edmondson Villajie Community Hall 
on Saturday, December 11th. It is hoped 
that many Alumni will help make this 
a fitting and worthy memorial. 

Nurses Honored 

Special tribute was paid to Miss 
Nannie J. Lackland at the annual ban- 
quet and dance of the University of 
Maryland Nurses' Alumnae Association. 
Last June Miss Lackland celebrated her 
50th anniversary as a graduate of the 
School of Nursing. During these 50 
years she has lived a full and bountiful 
life in the nursing profession. She has 
executed her leadership in the nursing- 
field across the country in the states of 
Oregon, Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois, 
North Carolina, and the District of 
Columbia. Here in Maryland Miss Lack- 
land's activities were widespread. She 
was a past president of the Nurses' 
Alumnae Association, and treasurer of 
the Maryland State Nurses' Association. 

She served on the fii-st Board of Nurse 
F^.xaminers. Miss Lackland was on the 
committee which composed the first By- 
Laws and Constitution of the Nurses' 
Alumnae Association in 190;5; and she .served on the Board of the Central 
Registry in Baltimore when it was first 
organized. Miss Lackland's enthusiasm 
and zest for nursing should serve as an 
inspiration to both student and graduate 

For over 20 years members of the 
Nurses' Alumnae Association have 
recognized the untiring work and de- 
voted spirit which Mrs. Bessie Maston 
Arnurius has put forth which no doubt 
has been outstanding in the continued 
growth and progress of our Alumnae 
Association. As a token of appreciation 
for her invaluable contributions, Mrs. 
Arnurius, class of 1920, was presented 
a gold watch by Miss Virginia Conley, 
President of the Nurses' Alumnae As- 
sociation at the Annual Banquet in June. 

Pediatric Exhibit Planned 

An exhibit representing the ideal 
situation for the caie of Pediatric pa- 
tients took place in October. The student 
nurses who are at present studying 
child care participated under the guid- 
ance and direction of Miss Reed, who 
recently became clinical instructor in 
the Department. 

The exhibit was aimed at acquainting 
hospital authorities as well as the gen- 
eral public with the proper selection of 
children's utensils and their importance 
in the proper growth and development 
of the child. Through the cooperation 
of civic-minded merchants, the students 
displayed clothes, toys, furniture, and 
eating utensils suited to every age 
group. The children themselves served 
as models for the project. 

At this time art work done by the 



children during their supervised play- 
time was displayed. The project was the 
first one of its kind to be undertaken by 
the students. They u.sed it as a means 
of interesting hospital authorities and 
philanthropic groups to furnish attrac- 
tive clothing, toys and surroundings for 
youngsters during their illness and con- 

Greetings and F'arewel! 

January is the tiaditional time for 
"ringing out the old, and ringing in the 
new," but that spirit has prevailed at 
the School of Nursing through Septem- 
ber. A tea on September 7th served as 
a welcome to the class of 1951. Suit- 
cases, radios, ironing boards, and the 
usual signs of new neighbors cluttered 
the first floor hall. The slow unsure 
steps, the shrill laughter and the quizz- 
ical expressions of the new "probies" 
evoked indulgent smiles from the older 
students who could remember when . . . 

For the class of '48 this would be the 
last opportunity to witness the fresh, 
eager spirit of "probies." No formal 
farewell marked their departure. Finish- 
ing dates varied so one by one they left, 
happy to be in their "Whites," and 
proud of their "Flossies," graduate 
nurses at last. 

Only a few remained to work at the 
University Hospital. Many headed for 
home and a vacation before assuming 
new responsibilities in their native hos- 
pitals and clinics. To both go the thanks, 
appreciation and gratitude of the ad- 
ministration, and those they have and 
are yet to serve. 


If your pressure cooker gets stained 
or dull looking, it may be brightened 
by cleaning it with a solution of vine- 
gar and water. Miss Helen Irene Smith, 
Home Management Specialist, Univer- 
sity of Maryland reports. Just pour 
enough hot water into the kettle to 
cover the stains and add two table- 
spoons of vinegar for each quart of 
water used. Seal the cooker, bring the 
pressure up to five pounds and hold it 
there five minutes. Then remove the 
kettle from the heat and allow the 
pressure to return to zero before tak- 
ing off the cover. Rinse the cooker and 
dry well. Never use baking soda on an 
aluminum cooker, for it darkens the 
metal and causes it to pit. 


Some hints on how to wash uphol- 
stery have been given by Miss Helen 
Irene Smith, home management spe- 
cialist at the University of Maryland. 
She recommends using a mild, almost 
dry. soap suds whipped to a froth with 
an egg beater. They should be rinsed 
off the fabric with several well wrung 
cloths. The final operation is to wipe 
it thoroughly with a dry cloth. This 
method is suggested to prevent too 
much water soaking into the padding. 

She mentions that there are some 
commercial upholstery soaps on the 
market that may be used if the direc- 
tions are followed carefully. Another 
trick-of-the-trade is to use an electric 
fan for drying the upholstery.

bration in honor of Dean Robinson's 
silver anniversary as head of the School. 
During the long period of his deanship 
Dr. Robinson has made one of the finest 
individual records in the history of 
American dentistry. Dr. Robinson has 
contributed strongly to every phase of 
American dental activity; his protean 
participation in the progress of dental 
education, dental journalism and dental 
organization has brought much reflected 
glory to the School from which he 
graduated in 1914. In June of 1949 his 
fellow alumni will express their recog- 
nition of Dr. Robinson's splendid record 
of service to the School. 

These classes will return for formally 
arranged reunions:

R.O.T.C. Unit 

Because of the lessons learned during 
the recent war the Army has established 
officer-training units in several dental 
schools that did not have much facilities 
under the ROTC program as it was 
maintained before the war. Maryland's 
School of Dentistry accepted the Army's 
invitation to participate in the greatly 
enlarged pi-ogram for the preparation 
of men to assume the responsibilities 
of commissioned officers in the Dental 
Corps. The quota of 38 men was quickly 
filled by 38 veterans who sought places 
on the roster of the unit. 

The unit is under the direction of 
Lieutenant-Colonel Frederick H. Rich- 
ardson, D.C., who has made a very 
favorable impression on both the faculty 
and the students of the School. A 
graduate of Kansas City-Western Den- 
tal School, he practiced for several 
years before enlisting in the Army 
Dental Corps in 1937. His war record 
is of unusual interest. He spent 68 
months in overseas service. Captured 
at Corregidor he was held prisoner by 

the Japanese for '.iV> years. After a long 
period of hospitalization, following his 
libeiation i)n Septembei- (), 1945, Colonel 
Richardson was assigned to Hamilton 
Field in Califoi-nia, where he served for 
two years prior to his coming to Malti- 

Foreign .Student.s 

Beginning with its sixth graduation 
class, the Class of 184(;, the School of 
Dentistry, known and respected through- 
out the world under the oi-iginal title 
of the Baltimore College of Dental Sur- 
gery, has graduated several hundred 
students fi-om foreign countries. As the 
first dental college of the world, the 
Baltimore College of Dental Surgery 
has enjoyed an unusual reputation 
among foreign dentists because of the 
historic status of the institution. Down 
through the 108 years of its existence 
this appeal has been supported by the 
excellent ranking the School has main- 
tained among the dental schools of this 

Until the turn of the century, when 
the major countries of the world began 
to establish dental colleges to provide 
formal education for their dentists, the 
dental schools of the United States pro- 
vided the only opportunities available 
to dentists who sought scientific pro- 
fessional training in their field. The 
American-trained dentists in foreign 
countries were regarded by the popula- 
tion as greatly superior to the home- 
trained products. Many of the Balti- 
more College of Dental Surgery gradu- 
ates have made notable contributions to 
the progress of dentistry in their native 

That the Baltimore College of Dental 
Surgery still has a strong appeal for 
foreign students is evidenced by the 
comparatively large number of them 
who are members of the present student 
body, in both the undergraduate and the 
graduate sections. 

Ram Pratap, who hails from Nabhe, 
India, received the B. D. S. and M. B. B. 
S. degrees from Punjab University and 
King Edward Medical College, respec- 
tively. He chose to come to Mai'yland 
because of the high recommendation 
given the School by the Dental Society 
of India. 

Another student from India is M. 
Sanjana, from the Bombay Presidency, 
who possesses the B. A. and B. Sc. de- 
grees from Bombay University, the 
B. D. S. degree from the University of 
London and the L. D. S. from the Royal 
College of Surgeons. Ali Nassir, a 
graduate of the School of Dental Sur- 
gery and Stomatology of Paris, came to 
Maryland from Bagdad, Iraq. 

Mrs. Ruth Schwarz, from Upper 
Silesia, Germany, received the D. M. D. 
degree from the University of Leipzig. 
During the recent war Mrs. Schwarz 
was imprisoned in the Auschwitz con- 
centration camp in Poland. Soon after 
her release she came to this country to 


enter the IJallimore College of Dental 

Masaichi Sagawa, whose home is in 
Mawi, Hawaii, came to Maryland with 
a s|)len(lid war record. Another off- 
continent teriitory of the United States, 
Pueilo Rico, is represented by over a 
score of students. The Puerto Rican 
grouj) is highly regarded by the faculty 
because of the fine inteiest denion- 
sti'ated by its members.

School of PHARMACY 

Late Dean Andre« (i. Du.Mez had been 
chosen for Pharmacy's Highest Honors. 

DK. ANDREW G. DuMEZ. Dean of 
the School of Pharmacy of the 
University of Maryland, who died re- 
cently, had been named the twenty-sixth 
Reminjrton Medalist. This award is 
presented by the New York Branch of 
the American Pharmaceutical Associa- 
tion to the person whose achievements 
and contributions during the preceding 
year or period of years is judged most 
important to .\merican Pharmacy. The 
Committee on .\ward consists of past 
presidents of the American Pharma- 
ceutical Association. 

The Remington Medal is the highest 
honor conferred in pharmacy. The 
award consists of a gold medal, com- 
memorating Joseph P. Remington, re- 
nowned in pharmacy for many years, 
and is considered to be the highest 
honor conferred in pharmacy. The Com- 
mittee on Award has stated that this 
award will be granted to Dr. DuMez 
"specifically as a recognition of his serv- 
ices as secretary of the .\merican Coun- 
cil on Pharmaceutical Education." It 
is interesting to note that the Committee 
further states that "his general promi- 
nence in the fields of education and re- 
search also qualifies him as a recipient 
of the medal." 

Dr. DuMez attended the University of 
Wisconsin, where he graduated in 
(Ph. G.) in 1904. He also received the 
degrees of Bachelor of Science, Master 
of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy 
from the University of Wisconsin. 

From 1905 to 1910, Dr. DuMez was 
an instructor in pharmaceutical chem- 
istry at the University of Wisconsin, 
was professor of Chemistry at Pacific 
University (Oregon) for one year, and 
also taught chemistry one year at Okla- 
homa Agricultural & Mechanical Col- 

In 1912 Dr. DuMez accepted a post as 
Director of the School of Pharmacy at 
the University of the Philippines. While 
there, he was appointed by the Vice- 
Governor of the Philippine Islands to 
conduct an investigation of its colleges 
of pharmacy, and was appointed by the 
Director of Health to serve as a mem- 
ber of the committee to revise pharmacy 
and drug laws of the Islands. 

Dr. DuMez returned to the United 
States in lOlfi, and accepted the Hallis- 
ter Fellowship at the University of Wis- 
consin. Upon receiving a Ph. D. degree 
in 1917, Dr. DuMez joined the U. S. 
Public Health Service in Washington, 
D. C. as associate pharmacologist in the 
Hygienic Laboratory. From 1918 until 
1922, he wrote the annual "Digest of 
Comments on the Pharmacopoeia of the 
United States and the National Formu- 
lary, publications of the U. S. Public 
Health Service." In 1918. the Secretary 
of the Treasury, appointed Dr. DuMez 
a member and secretary of the Special 

Committee to Investigate the Traffic of 
Narcotics in the United States. In 1925, 
the Secretary of State appointed him 
official delegate of the United States 
Government to the Second Conference 
on the Unification of Standards for 
Potent Remedies, which met in Brussels, 
Belgium in September 1925. 

In 1926 Dr. DuMez resigned from the 
Public Health Service to become Dean 
of the School of Pharmacy, University 
of Maryland. 

Dr. DuMez served long and faithfully

(Hanging near the fireplace in the 
Colonial home the almanac was a guide 
to the season.s — a record of sun, moon, 
and tides. It contained other useful in- 
formation and took the place of today's 
calendar, newspaper, magazine, and 
radio. Family data written on the mar- 
gin of its pages made it a sort of family 
history. Franklin, seeing the need for 
wiser living, had the idea of using this 
means to emphasize fundamental ideals 
and virtues. He began in 1732 to pub- 
lish his almanac, pretending it was 
written by Richard Saunders. After 25 
years, he gathered the proverbial sen- 
tences that had been scattered through 
"Poor Richard's Almanac" into a con- 
nected discourse, which was prefixed to 
the edition of 1757. The .sayings below 
are taken from the almanacs.) 

But dost thou love life? Then do not 
squander time, for that is the stuff that 
life is made of! 

HUM.AN felicity is produced not so 
much by great pieces of fortune that 
.seldom happen as by little advantages 
that happen every day. 

Early to bed and early to rise, makes 
a man healthy, wealthy, and wise. 

He that hath a trade hath an estate, 
and he that hath a calling hath an office 
of profit and honor. 

Sell no virtue to wealth, nor 
liberty to purchase power. 

Tart words make no friends: A spoon- 
ful of honey will catch more flies than a 
gallon of vinegar. 

A little neglect may breed great mis- 
chief. For want of a nail the shoe was 
lost; for want of a horse the rider was 
lost, being overtaken and slain by the 
enemy; all for want of a little care 
about a horseshoe nail. 

For age and want, save while you 
mav. no morning sun lasts a whole day.

Charley Keller (left), veteran Yankee outfielder, shakes hands with Senator Millard 
Tydings of Maryland as he is accorded signal recognition on "Charley Keller Day" at Yankee 
Stadium. Next to the Senator is Mrs. Tydings and to her left is Mrs. Keller. Keller received 
a pile of gifts in addition to tvro scholarships set up in his name at his alma mater, the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. 

Keller, one of the most distinguished athletes from the University of Maryland, was the 
victim of a delightful "double-cross" by his friends. 

They gave him a "day" and, against his express wishes, showered gifts on the powerful 
New York Yankee outlielder. 

In a generous gesture, the muscular, bushy-browed Keller had requested his friends to 
divert contributions for the event to the establishment of a scholarship to the University of 
Maryland for some boy from the New York area who otherwise would not be able to attend 

Keller's friends collected enough money to establish two scholarships and had enough left 
over to supply Keller, his wife and children with an impressive list of gifts. 

His three children were presented an electric train set, model building set, a 20-volume 
set of books and a case of candy. Mrs. Keller was given a handbag, a watch, a dozen pairs of 
shoes and a diamond ring. 

Keller, at a microphone, after he had been given a swarm of articles, told the crowd of 
65,607, "I can only say that I appreciate this honor very much and that I feel I am lucky to 
wear a New York Yankee uniform." 

Keller's gifts included a golf bag and clubs, a hat wardrobe, a chest of silverware, a silver 
tray, three sport shirts, a set of pipes, a bathrobe, a wrist watch, a television set and an all- 
expense air trip to Bermuda for himself and Mrs. Keller. 

Senator Tydings of Maryland accepted the two scholarships on behalf of the university. 
Dr. H. C. Byrd, president of the university, and Judge William P. Cole, Jr., chairman of the 
board of regents, also participated in the ceremonies.

^f ^HARLEY KELLER is one of 
^_yniy best friends," said the 
Yankees' Tommy Henrich, taking a 
breather on New York's bench between 
batting practice turns. "He's not a 
gabby sort of fellow and no back- 
slapper, but there's nobody on the club 
who is better liked. He's sincere and 

"Keller and I became good friends 
the first few weeks we knew each other," 
continued Henrich. "I was declared a 
free agent and left Cleveland to join 
the Yankees. They sent me over to 

Newark for 10 days and I roomed with 

"Well, at the end of the season, I 
went to Baltimore to have a torn carti- 
lage operated on and Keller drove quite 
a few miles to see me. He didn't have 
to. We hadn't known each other very 
long — but he's that sort of man. 

"One of the doctors at Johns Hopkins 
came to me after Keller had left and 
said, 'How can you be so friendly with 
Keller? Isn't he trying to get your job 
with the Yankees?' I told the doctor 
there was room for both of us in the 
Yankees' outfield and that's the way it 
worked out." 

Cornered in the Yankees' dressing 
room, where he was examining his siza- 


ble stock of lumber, Keller wrung a bit 
of sawdust from one of his pet bats 
squeezing it with his mammoth hands 
and said, "I guess if I had to pick my 
biggest moment in baseball it would be 
the double I hit in the 1941 World Series 
after Mickey Owens dropped that third 
strike on Henrich." That double, inci- 
dentally, fetched home the tying and 
winning runs. 

Keller was given a unique "day." His 
admirers wanted to flood him with gifts, 
but Charley insisted that funds be di- 
verted to establish a scholarship at the 
University of Maryland for a New York 
boy who otherwise wouldn't have an 
opportunity of attending college. It's 
typical Keller — not typical ball player. 

Typically Keller 
Charley's move came as a shock to 
the ba.seball world, accustomed to view- 
ing players accept automobiles, matched 
minks, a bull, and in the case of Pepper 
Martin, two mules. Keller actually gave 
his day back to the fans in an unprece- 
dented generous gesture. 

"I don't need anything else," ex- 
plained Keller, belittling his fine action. 
This comes from a quiet, mild-mannered 
fellow who has been labeled "the Beast' 
and "King Kong" and ■who, when the 
Yankees signed him, was confronted 
with the question, "Did they sign him 
or trap him?" 

Keller is a fearsome fellow, indeed, 
with a bat in his hands. His long, mus- 
cular arms, powerful back and menac- 
ing, scowling appearance have struck 
terror into the hearts of opposing big 
league pitchers. Still, Keller is a player 
who has been prevented from creating 
more havoc by a chipped ankle bone in 
1941, the removal of a spinal disc in 
1947 and a broken bone in 1948. Then, 
too, Keller played for two years with 
ailing wrists caused by the force of his 
sweeping stroke. 

No Bid From D. C. 

Keller was playing at College Park, 
a couple of brassie shots from Wash- 
ington's Griffith Stadium when in col- 
lege, but he says he wasn't approached 
by the Washington club. He was ap- 
proached by the Yankees, Detroit 
Tigers, Boston Red Sox. Pittsburgh 
Pirates, Philadelphia Athletics, and 
Chicago Cubs in one of the most ex- 
haustive talent hunts in baseball history. 

The Yankees detailed two scouts to 
track down Keller, who was spending 
his summer vacation playing baseball 
for Kinston, N. C. Paul Krichell was in 
BulTalo for the purpose of signing 
Emerson Dickman. a pitcher later 
signed by the Red Sox, when Krichell 
was ordered by headquarters to head 
for Kinston and concentrate on Keller. 

Krichell went to College Park to chat 
with Keller's coach, Burt Shipley. Then 
he went to Middlctown, Md., to talk to 
Keller's parents. Finally, Krichell in-

vaded Kinston, where Scout Gene Mc- 
Cann of the Yankees was attempting to 
get Kellei-'s signature before rival 
scouts cornered Charley. 

Krichell met McCann at 6 a.m. and 
they got Keller out of bed. Krichell 
wisely walked Charley out of that im- 
mediate vicinity. The offer was $5,000 
to sign, plus the fact that the Yankees 
would pay for the completion of his 
college education. Charley also was 
granted permission to select his own 
farm club and the Yankees tossed in a 
free trip to Florida during Keller's 
spring vacation. Charley signed a 
Yankee contract on the side of a house. 

Went to Bears 

Keller worked out with the Yankees 
at St. Petersburg during vacation and 
a little later he dropped out of school 
at Maryland to join the Newark Bears, 
completing his education during the 
winter. He led the International League 
with a .353 average and was voted the 
No. 1 player in the minor leagues, but 
the Yankees couldn't create a spot for 
him. He retui-ned to Newark in 1938 
and hit .365, whereupon the Yankees 
found room. 

He has played in four World Series 
and in three of them nobody topped him 
in runs batted across. In 1941 he 
whacked across 122 runs before sustain- 
ing a chipped ankle on September 11. 
In 1941 and 1942 Keller outhomered Joe 
Di Maggio and when he injured his 
spine on June 5 last year he was leading 
the league in homers with 15. In 1946 
he scored more runs, got more hits,

doubles, triples, home runs, and batted 
across more runs than Di Maggio. 

Keller has been a successful sort of 
ball player. There's reason to believe 


he's a successful man, too, when he can 
say, "I have enough" and make it pos- 
sible for some struggling youngster to 
acquire an education.

More Contributions 

Keller '."{7, Agriculture, showed the 
mettle which has made him great when 
he agreed to a Day in his honor only on 
condition that out of that day should 
come a scholarship to the University of 
Maryland for some deserving boy. The 
enthusiastic response spread to many 
localities with the result that not one 
but two scholarships were presented to 
Keller on his Day. Miss Morris re- 
ported as this story goes to press, "Many 
contributions have arrived since the 
close of the drive and more are antici- 
pated. We not only exceeded the goal 
by obtaining two scholarships but we 
are now well on the way to making this 
a perpetual or continuing scholarship." 

The typical Keller generosity received 
extremely favorable reception through 
nation-wide syndicated columns includ- 
ing Walter Winchell, local newspaper 
columns and on national radio hookups 
including the programs of Lowell 
Thomas, Arthur Godfrey, Bill Brandt. 

"Dutch" Bergman, and Ray Michael. 
Alumni wholeheartedly approved the 
plan and support was given by the gen- 
eral Alumni Council. 

The New York Committee, upon 
whose shoulders fell the full responsi- 
bility for planning the Day, included 
Harry D. Watts, General Chairman; 
Edmund C. Mayo, Co-Chairman of 
Special Gifts; J. Donald Kieffer, Co-

Real "Maryland" Day 

Ceremonies were held at home plate 
jneceding the Yankees-Red Sox game 
before a capacity crowd and at a time 
when Cleveland, Boston, and New York 
were locked in a three way tie for the 
American League lead. Mel Allen. 
Yankee broadcaster, introduced Chair- 
man Watts who presented Four Year 
Scholarships to the University in 
Charlie Keller's name. Senator Millard 
E. Tydings, a member of the Board of 
Regents of the University, accei)ted the 
Scholarships on behalf of the Univer- 
sity and praised Keller's outstanding 


achievements as an alumnus, an athlete 
and an American. Also introduced to 
the 70,000 fans were President Byrd 
and Judge William P. Cole, Jr., Chair- 
man of the Board of Regents. Then 
followed the introduction of Charlie 
Keller who expressed his appreciation 
to the University, the alumni, and the 
baseball fans. Keller's appearance and 
comments were given a tremendous 

It fell upon Mel Allen to advise Keller 
that the alumni and fans had worked a 
friendly double-cross on him. Although 
Keller had wanted all cash contributions 
to go the Scholarship, a number of 
the alumni and fans wanted Charlie 
and his family to have tangible remem- 
berances of his Day. Allen said, "The 
members of the Committee and Charlie's 
great throng of friends made up their 
minds that despite his very gracious 
attitude, he would take home from this 
Day material things from which he 
might long remember this occasion." 

For the Family 

To Charlie, his wife, the former 
Maltha Lee Williams, '37, Baltimore, 
and the three youngsters went the fol- 
lowing gifts: 

A sterling silver Gorham Chippendale 
tray from the Alumni Club of New York 
with the inscription "To Charles Keller 
whose career has exemplified the high- 
est ideals of courage, modesty, sports- 
manship, and generosity." 

A chest of Gorham's new Melrose pat- 
tern silverware, donated by The Gorham 
Company, was pre.sented in the name of 
the Maryland Alumni Association. A 
golf bag and clubs, wool bathrobe from 
Auerbach's, Hat wardrobe — Young 
Stores, Roble Shoe wardrobe, set of 
seven matched Kaywoodie Pipes, Bulova 
Wrist Watch, McGregor Wool sport 
shirts, and a Dumont Savoy Television 
Set — combination radio and automatic

In addition, the "double-cross" in-' 
eluded a round trip flight to Bermuda 
on the Colonial Airlines. In the words 
of Mel Allen, the celebration and the 
honors were for "the man of the Day, 
old number 12 — Charlie Keller." 

Following the game a number of 
alumni gathered in the Stadium Club 
to have a chat with this baseball great 
and his wife. Among those present were

tween the Southern Conference season 
and the National tournament, opens at 
Charleston. S. C. on January 2!Hh with 
the Terps facinjr Coach Matty Matthews 
Citadel Bulldogs, Southern Conference 
champions. This mifiht well be Mary- 
land's toujjhest match of the season. 
The Citadel has a veteran team, well 
coached and conditioned. 

Preceding: the varsity season Mary- 
land will again stagre an Intramuial 
tournament, the semi-finals and finals 
of which will take place in public. Last 
year this tournament, starting with 
110 entries, produced Rowland Hyde, 
Bob Smith and Mike Smith, varsity 

Kenny Malone, great anchor man for 
Maryland for four years, will not be 
back this year, having graduated. 

Lettermen that will return and the 
weights at which they will try for posi- 
tions are: Al Salkowski, 130. (Al is 
moving up one notch. Head Coach 
Heinie Miller frowns on excessive de- 
hydration.) Andy Quattrocchi, smash- 
ing puncher at 130 last year, will move 
up to 135. He too is getting bigger. At 
145 there will be a scramble for the top 
spot with Rowland Hyde, Paul Oliver, 
brother Don Oliver and several new- 
comers sighting in for action. 

Al Glass, former Charlotte Hall star, 
is out for the 125 pound spot as is also 
Mike Smith, another Charlotte Hall 
boy. Nick Novak, Duquesne, Pa., ex- 
Marine Corps champ, will be available 
for the second semester. 

Dynamic Eddie Rieder, undefeated 
all last year until he lost a split de- 
cision, for some reason or other, for the 
National title, will be back for his last 
year in the black and gold spangles of 
the Old Line. 

Newcomer Angell Bavosa, quite a 
mitman it is said, will be challenging 
Eddie for that spot and will also make 
a bid for the 165 pound slot where Bob 
Gregson holds forth from last year's 

At 175 Bob Hafer will try for honors 
again while many of the student body 
are hoping Nick Kozay, a very good 
boxer indeed, will go out for the team 
this year. There's a fellow with the 
making of a national champion. 

Others eligible from last year's squad 
include Walter Lindquist, 165; Paul 
Kostopoulos, 135; Joe Kwiatkowski, 
165; Bob Smith, 175; Harry Schwarz- 
welder, 175; Danny McLaughlin, 125; 
Davey Chance, 135; Larry LoPrete, 
175; Spencer Newton, 135. 

A likely prospect for 175 pound 
honors is George McEntee, Washington, 
D. C, who did considerable boxing as a 
junior amateur. 

Jim Moeller, from the football squad, 
is also being urged to go after the var- 
sity lightheavy or heavy billets. Jim 
was the star of the crack Fairfax Hi 

Big Mont Whipp, recovered from an 
ear ailment that grounded him last 
year, will be after the heavyweight spot 
in earnest. 

The Terps had a hard time making 
up a schedule this year. There are three 
varsity and one freshman home meets 
and four meets on the road. 

For various reasons some of the bet- 
ter known college teams could not take 
on the Terps this year. 

Head Coach Heinie Miller will again 
be assisted by Frank Cronin this year. 

The season at College Park opens on 
February 5th against Marty Gallagher's 
Georgetown mitmen, followed by Cath- 
olic University and Michigan State. 
Also there will be a freshmen match 
against Charlotte Hall. 

In foreign rings the Terps take on 
The Citadel, South Carolina, Miami 
University and Louisiana State.

Maryland's "Cookie" and Kiski Prep's "Matty" 


The Waihington Star 

THKSK two younjr fellows, Mob and Art, had crossed the 
Atlantic on the same ship and been billeted at the same 
decommissioned RAF base, Uxbridjre, and had won K<>ld 
medals in the 1948 Olympic j;ames at London. They'd even 
retuined home on the same ship, but it wasn't until Bob 
Mathias and Arthur Cook sat on a leather sofa in the White 
House that they met. 

Mathias, 17-year-old Tulare, Calif., youth who won the 
dacathlon, had just flown from Saltsburp:, Pa., to receive an 
award as Youth of the Year from President Truman and 
Attorney General Clark. When the ()-foot 2-inch ^iant stepped 
out of the plane one of his preeters was the pint-sized Cook, 
a University of Maiyland boy who won the Olympic small- 
bore ritte championship. 

The strapping Mathias, a student at Kiski Prep, weighs 
198 i)ounds. He's huge for a 17-year-old and he looks far 
more mature than his afje. He accei)ted Cook as the younjj 
son of a member of the fiieetinn- party, he admitted later. 

Ml Pretty Busy 

When they reached the White House there was a brief 
delay before the meeting with the President. The 120-pound 
sharpshooter sat down and a repoiter asked Mathias if he'd 
met Cook on the Ameiican Olymjjic ship. 

"No," replied Mathias, as if a bit puzzled. "There were an 
awful lot of people on board." 

"Cookie won a rifle title for the United States," volunteei'ed 
the reporter. The little University of Maryland junior blushed 
as Mathias stared down at him. 

"I knew who you were," said Cook, "but I never got to meet 
you. I guess we were all so busy we never got to be very 

"Gee," mumbled Mathias, "you're awfully young to beat 
those rifle guys." 

"I'm three years older than you," briskly responded Cook. 
"I'm 20 and you're only 17." Cook looks 14 and would fit 
nicely into a pocket of Mathias' checked sports coat. 

Mathias grinned and sat down next to the other kid who'd 
won a gold Olympic medal for the United States. A few 
minutes later they were herded into the President's office and 
out to the porch, where the newsreel and newspaper photog- 
raphers shot them for a full five minutes. 

The Chief Executive seemed to get a bang out of the two 
young world's champions flanking him, Mathias so tall and 
strapping and Cook so .small and fragile in appearance. When 
the photographers were finished he took them into his office — 
leaving the rest of the party outside — before releasing them a 
few moments later. 

"How does it feel to be a celebrity?" asked another news- 
paperman of Mathias. 

"Fine," grinned the big kid. "You certainly meet a lot of 
interesting people." 

Two Fine Boys 

It is not in this bureau's field to sermonize, but for those 
active in this field there was plenty of material at this get- 
together staged by the Attorney General, who is holding up 
the likes of Mathias and Cook as examples of the best in young 
America in sports. Aside from their physiques, Mathias and 
Cook have everything else in common. 

The California boy who defeated 33 of the world's best all- 
around athletes in London wants to be a physician-surgeon, 
he says. "My father is a doctor and my grandfather was a 
doctor," he revealed. "I want to finish at Kiski and enter 
Stanford as a pre-med." 

"Any pro plans?" he was asked. 

"None what.soever," smiled Mathias. "Incidentally, that's a 
funny question to ask a track and field man. Whoever heard 
of anybody making money out of a decathlon?" 


The Washington Timei-Herald 

A17-YEAH-0L1) boy who isn't even old enough to register 
in the diaft is the world's outstanding athlete of the 
moment. He's Robert Bruce Mathias, the son of a Tulare, 
Calif., physician, and he had himself a bug-eye time in Wash- 
ington visiting the famous names of the nation like President 
Truman and Attorney General Tom Clark. 

Like any boy his age, Robert Bruce is really getting a kick 
out of living. The kid went through 12 hours of the toughest 
of all Olympic competition and when they figured up the 10 
events that make up the decathlon he ruled as the best there 

Following him around, everyone got as big a bang as he 
did. Wasn't it Thackeray who said: "How lovely things must 
seem to you who have such lovely eyes to see them through." 
Looking at the world through the 17-year-old eyes of Bob 
Mathias makes you stop at the wondei- of this country where 
achievement, rather than birth, means so much. 

Quite A Contrast 

Mathias was ijuite a contrast to Arthur Cook, the 20-year- 
old Maryland university junior who brought the University 
of Maryland its first Olympic championship. Cookie has an 
amazingly juvenile face, even for 20. He looks about 15 and 
stands five-feet-six to Mathias' six-feet-two and weighs 120 
pounds, while his bigger and younger colleague weighs close 
to 200. 

Cookie said that when he went to register for the draft they 
chased him out until he verified his age with Maryland uni- 
versity authorities. He looks "gee whiz." but the boy has 
talent for small bores — at least the kind they have in rifles — 
because he's the Olympic champion of all in shooting. 

His baby face reminded me of the German kids we used to 
see during the war. They looked so innocent and young, but 
they could shoot like mountaineers and they sniped many an 
American soldier. You never can tell by looking at 'em. Not 
that Arthur is a vicious sniper, but it goes to prove that Smith 
and Wesson and Garand and Colt indeed made everybody 

Anybody who becomes a champion is naturally great. You\ 
don't find any biishers winning titles. 

"Whoever heard of a professional rifle shooter?" laughed 
Cook, who is trying to work his way through Maryland to 
become a mechanical engineer. "We're in the wi-ong sports, 
not that I'm interested in making money out of mine." 

"I'm not interested, either," said Mathias. "I'm going to 
play football at, but even if I were any good I'd want 
no parts of the pro game." 

Iron Nerves 

No matter how long one had been watching athletes, it \\; 
.somehow difficult to associate this pair with world honors. 
Until the National Rifle Association experts pointed up his 
absolute coolness and iron nerves it never seemed that Cook 
could command a 22-pound rifle with such accuracy as to win 
an Olympic title. 

As for Mathias, while he's impressive in physique, he re- 
mains a tender youth to have conquered other Americans in 
their mid-20s and the Europeans of the same age and older 
in the most rugged of events-. You know what a decathlon is, 
no doubt. It consists of 10 events, ranging from the 100 
meters dash to the 1,500 meters run and the discus, pole vault, 
high jump, javelin throw, high and low hurdles, broad jump 
and hammer throw. 

"You know, I really can't do anything well. I just did a 
lot of things fairly well in London, but I can't win very many 
single events." 

It was just about this time that he won designation as the 
Youth of the Year. Fellow named Truman confirmed it.

By Cfeoriie L. Carroll 

MARYLAND will face 2(! oppo- 
nents in a major basketball 
schedule for the 1948-49 season. Coach 
Flucie Stewart has had his charges 
workino: since mid-October. With the 
turnout as lar^e as it was, a tall squad 
is in the offinjj. 

The Terps will 
start on December 
4 at Philadelphia 
w hen the y m e e t 
powerful Temple 
University in the 
famed double- 
header at Conven- 
tion Hall. They will 
play a 14 srame 
Conference sched- 
ule. On the road 
they will be meet- 
ing: top opponents 
in Miami, Cincin- 
nati, Virginia, 
Georgetown, and 
The Terps lost only one man on last 
season's squad, all-Metropolitan center 
Bill Brown. Brown, will be seen in 
action as a professional this year with 
the Oshkosh, Wisconsin Warriors. Re- 
turning to the fold for his last season 
will be Captain Johnny Edwards, one 
of the leading scorers of last year's five 
that went to the Southern Conference 
Tourney. Some of the other vets back 
for another year of play will be Bernie 
Smith, Al Lann, Ronnie Siegrist, Walt 
Pritchard and Frank Armsworthy. 
Diminutive Eddie Crescenze, the 5' 5" 
ball stealing basketeer will also be on 

Two of Coach Burt Shipley's baseball 
men will be on hand when the Terps 
take the floor for their first game. All 
have had quite a bit of experience in 
the "round ball" game. Leading the 
pack will be Bucky Loomis, a 6' 3" stal- 
wart who iTiight fit into the guard slot. 
Gene Emsweller, hard hitting outfielder 
for the Old Line baseball nine will blos- 
som forth as a sharp shooting forward. 
Both these men lost the chance of 
Spring Practice that Stewart held but 
kept in shape over the summer playing 
a lot of ball. 

One of the men to watch in this 
.season's lineup will be center Jack 
Myers, 6' 4", the tallest man on the 
squad. Myers, a Tennessean, played 
a lot of JV ball last season but is now 
eligible for varsity competition. A real 
ball hawk, his addition to the squad is 
most helpful. A trio of veterans, Bob 
Yordy, Charlie Mack and Walter Hart, 
all of whom played under Burt Shipley 
showed a lot of promise in early 

Flucie Stewart will use a double-pivot 
with a fast break type of play again 
this season. Introduced to most of the 
team last year for the first time, aggres- 
siveness and alertness were found to be 
its potential factors. The Stewart men 
had a slow start last year but ended up

youngster and Olympic Decathlon champion (left) and Arthur ("the Cookie") Cook, tJniver- 
sity of Maryland's World Champion Rifle shot. 

in a blaze of glory to win a berth in the 
Conference Tourney. 

A student of the fast break, Coach 
Stewart has met with much success with 
teams he coached in the past. His Ap- 
palachian State Teachers (N. C.) teams 
finished high in several National Tour- 
neys held at Kansas City. With this 
hard working, and tall outfit this year 
a great season for Maryland is not at 
all impossible. 

A new addition to the Ritchie Coli- 
seum this year will be glass backboards, 
an innovation and possible help to the 
fast type of game witnessed on the 
hardboards of today. Typed after the 
backboards used in Madison Square 
Garden, Maryland will become one of 
the first teams in the Southern Confer- 
ence to adopt them. 

One of the distressing things the 
Terps will face this year will be the 
inadequacy of their present basketball 
court, where the rest of the students 
might witness their endeavors. As it 
stands some 5,000 students fill the gym 
for basketball events with several thou- 
sand more being turned away. The only 
thing that will alleviate this will be the 
several games that can be played at the 
Armory in Washington. Among these 
may be the Washington Post Tourney 
which at this printing has not been 
settled but which will pit the Terps 
against leading teams of the country 
around the Christmas holidays. Plans 
call for the erection on the campus in 
the future for a gym that will hold 
some 17,000 for boxing and 14,500 for 

All in all, the University of Maryland 
basketball honors are looking up and 
spreading to distant parts of the coun- 


try. A tough road is in the offing for 
this season but with the fine spirit of 
the Maryland rooters. Coach Flucie 
Stewart and his charges should get all 
the support that will cheer them on 
through the season and, when the final 
game is crossed off the books, February 
26, 1949, the Terps could be Tourney 


We note a news item pointing out that 
Mathias is "the youngest competitor to 
have ever won an Olympic title." Memo- 
ries of so-called "experts" are short. 
Get 'em beyond their own generation 
and, without a record book and refer- 
ence to a specific page, they're none too 
"expert." At Antwerp, Belgium, in 
1920, a first prize for fancy diving was 
awarded to little Aileen Riggin. Aileen 
was then ten years old. 


Maryland's Cross Cou!itry team. 
Southern Conference champs, continued 
on their winning ways to topple the 
Quantico Marines. The Terps, coached 
by Jim Kehoe, former cross-country 
great, successfully started their 1948 
defense of the Southern Conference

on the right side of a 19 to 89 score (low 
score deciding the winning team). 

The meet consisted of only one event, 
a four-mile jaunt over a marked course, 
and right from the starting gun the 
Terps took over and stayed in front.

Terps 19. Spiders 

AT Richmond, with Vein Seibert. 
Johnny Idzik, Jim Larue, Vic 
Turyn and Huhie Werner, showing 
speed and class, Maryland opened the 
'48 football season by chasing the Rich- 
mond Spiders all over the lot, 19 to 0. 

The Spiders were stubborn, but Mary- 
land had the persuaders to move them 
out of the way in a string of hard hit- 
ting backs and a stout line that kept 
the Virginians bottled up on their own 
side of the field. 

Seibert scored the Terps first touch- 
down late in the first quarter, going 12 
yards for the score. His 17-yard run, 
following Larue's 30-yard punt return, 
.set up the second score, which was reg- 
istered by Vic Turyn on a 4-yard thrust 
off tackle early in the third. 

Larue turned in the game's longest 
and most thrilling run, an 80-yard punt 
return through the entire Richmond 
eleven for a score early in the final 

Richmond never seriously threatened, 
spending most of the night banging 
futilely at the big Terp line. 

Terp.s 21, Delaware 

Maryland shut out the University of 
Delaware at Wilmington, 21-0. 

Vic Turyn accounted for three of his 
team's fumbles, but made up for his 
miscue.^ by hurling touchdown passes 
to Elmer Wingate and Francis Evans 
in a lively fourth period. 

Turyn wound up on thirteen passes 
and made connections of eight of them. 

Vern Seibert did most of Maryland's 
running and proved an able filler-in 
for Lu Ganibino. Beside scoring on a 
5-yard jaunt, Seibert contributed a 
number of other sizable scampers that 
had the Delaware secondary running 
around in circles. 

The first score came in the second 
quarter. Turyn tossed a perfect strike 
to Scoop Evans, 'i yards from pay dirt, 
and the Old Line flanker dived over for 
his very first collegiate touchdown. 
Tommy McHugh booted the conversion. 

An almost blocked Delaware punt 
paved the way for Maryland's second 
touchdown in the fourth quarter. The 
wobbly kick was taken by Maryland on 
the Blue Hens' 49. Harry Bonk, Mary- 
land's fullback, broke through the 
center of the line for a .32-yard canter 
to the 18. 

On three plays. Vern Seibert broke 
away at the 5 to score on a hand-off 
from Turyn. And again McHugh's con- 
version was good. 

The third touchdown came when 
Turyn tossed a 1.5-yard pass to Elmer 
Wingate at the goal line. Paul Broglio 
recovered a Delaware fumble at the 
Blue Hens' 46 and the Terps set up the

scoiing play with a 20-yard pass from 
Turyn to Pete Augsburger. McHugh 
again kicked the point. 

Terps 28, Tech 

A Maryland team that hit too hard 
and too often for Virginia Tech plucked 
the Gobblers, 28 to 0, at Grifiith Sta- 
dium, Washington, D. C. 

Maryland scored a touchdown in each 
of the first two periods and two more 
in the third before giving Tech a chance 
to see what they could do against the 
second and third stringers — and even 
that wasn't much. 

The Gobblers gained only 111 yards 
on the ground against the Terps, 19 
yards less than Maryland lost in penal- 
ties in the rough contest. 

Virginia Tech started off as if they 
might make things difficult for the 
Terrapins, so did the Gobblers. 

Late in the first quarter the Terps 
drove 99 yards to their first score, but 
not before Tech had moved 85 yards to 
the Maryland five. Maryland's big line 
stalled the Gobbler advance and the 
Terps were still in dire trouble when 
an offside on their first offensive play 
l)ushed them back to their own one. 

With Vic Turyn handing the ball off 
to Josh Idzik and Hubie Werner, the 
Terps began picking up yardage in big 
chunks until Idzik scored on a lateral 
from Turyn from the 13. Tom McHugh 
made it seven points with a perfect con- 

-; 44 ^ 

version as the opening session came to 
a close. 

The second Maryland touchdown wa> 
made by Werner, who climaxed a sus- 
tained drive of 95 yards with a plunge 
from the five. Werner took the ball 
from Turyn, started off toward his right 
but cut back to score through the mid- 
dle, and again McHugh sent the ball 
for the extra point. 

The third period was Maryland's big- 
gest and the end of the game as far as 
the regulars were concerned. On both 
the Old Liner's jaunts into pay dirt in 
this season, hefty Harry Bonk, the 
Maryland fullback, bore the brant of 
the attack and scored both times. 

Early in the third period Turyn tossed 
a lateral to Vern Seibert to set up the 
third touchdown play and Bonk pu.shed 
over from the one for the six pointer. 
The Terps used a total of 13 plays to 
eat up the 38 yards of the drive and 
again McHugh made good his extra 
point boot, his seventh straight. 

The second Bonk touchdown was the 
toughest Maryland or any other team 
ever had to make. Starting on the 
Tech 39. Werner broke away to the 
five but an illegal use of the hands 
jienalty pushed the Terps back to their 
own 48. 

Maryland began moving again and 
this time the drive was culminated by 
the bull-like Old Line fullback smashing 
over from the two. Tommy Dean con- 

At the start of the last period. Tatum 
flooded the field with his second and 
third stringers but Tech had little left.'

game at Grittith Stadium. 

Twice Tom McHush failed to boot 
extra points after touchdowns. McHu}jh 
had converted successfully seven 
straight times in the Terp's first three 

McHu^rh's failure to lift the Terps to 
a tie or triumph wasn't all his fault. On 
the first occasion a bad pass from 
Center Jim Brasher was followed by a 
wide boot. On the second try, Duke 
sifted through Maryland's line to block 
the kick. 

!n the fourth period on Duke's 9, 
' Tackle Jim Goodman attempted a field 
goal from the 18. It was low and wide, 
i and Duke clung to its 13-12 margin. 

The Terps handed mighty Duke the 
i scai'e of a yet young season and the 
statistics show the Terps outplayed the 
Blue Devils.

A fighting Terp team dug deep into 
Jim Tatum's bag of tricks but the win- 
ning points just weren't there. 

Duke's first touchdown came as the 
big break of the game, and had the 
Terps been a little more alert it might 
never have happened. 

Folger, Duke's great triple-threater, 
standing on his own 33, whipped a long 
ppss to Hughes at Maryland's 30. After 
the Duke halfback had broken away 
from Joe Tucker he dropped the ball 
but he scooped it up again and raced 
the remaining distance for the touch- 

In the second quarter, Maryland 
marched 57 yards to score and set up 
what could have been a tie ball game. 
Hubie Werner climaxed the drive with 
a bull-like smash from the one-yard 
line but the bid for the extra point 
slithered off. 

Maryland bounced into the lead in the 
early moments of the third quarter and 
the great homecoming crowd cheered 
lustily as Stan Karnash, a sophomore 
end, caught a 33-yard pitch from Vic 
Turyn in the end zone. This time a bad 
pass left little chance to kick. 

After Maryland had kicked off to 
Duke, Broglio's boot sailed high and 
long into the end zone and the ball was 
hrought out to the 20. 

Duke tried a play through the center 
and lost two yards. On the next play 
Cox, Duke halfback, started around his 
own right side and, behind perfect block- 
ing, ran 82 yards to score and Duke led 

In the early moments of the fourth 
quarter the Terps appeared on the verge 
of scoring again when Maryland loomed 
big. Twenty yards from the Duke goal 
Turyn started pitching and when his 
three heaves failed to hit the mark in 

came Goodninn for the field goal try. 
That was the last time that Maryland 
threatened and from there on it was 
a rock 'em sock 'em battle that got 
neither teatn anywhere near pay dii't. 

The Terps outplayed the Blue Devils 
throughout but it was the same old 
story as last year's Duke-Maryland bat- 
tle. Maryland gained all the yardage 
and made the most first downs but just 
didn't make enough points. "Maybe," 
said George Weber, "we just tion't live 

Jim Tatum had a great ball club in 
there. It was, as the feller says, "a 
tough one to lose." 

The Maryland team was fiery, aggres- 
sive and, most all afternoon, brilliant. 
Yeah, it WAS a tough one to lose. 


Coach Jim Kehoe's Maryland cross 
country runners notched a perfect score 
in defeating Duke harriers, 15-43. 

In a four-way tie for first, Palmer, 
Kehoe, White and Umbarger of Mary- 
land covered the 4-mile course in 21 
minutes 29 seconds. Grimaldi of Mary- 
land placed fifth. Griffith, in sixth place, 
was the first Duke runner to cross the 
finish line. 

The Maryland freshman team de- 
feated the Duke freshman, 17-45, over 
a 2.7-mile course. 


Invitations to take part in an All 
Southern Intercollegiate Championship 
Boxing Tournament have been mailed 
to ten universities south of the Mason- 
Dixon Line, Professor George D. Quig- 
ley. of the University of Maryland, 
Chairman of the Southern Conference 
Boxing Committee, has announced. 

Invitations were sent to The Citadel, 
University of South Carolina, Univer- 
sity of Virginia, Louisiana State Uni- 
versity, University of Miami, University 
of Georgia, Catholic University of 
America, Georgetown University, Amer- 
ican University and the University of 

Should additional southern schools, 
such as Clemson, North Carolina, and 
others decide to resume boxing, they 
will also be invited, Quigley said. 

"This tournament," Quigley went on 
to say, "is intended to create, through 
competition, greater interest in boxing 
in the South." 

The staging of the All-Southern 
Tournament, scheduled for March 24 
to 26, 1949, has been approved by 
Colonel William Couper, V.M.I., Presi- 
dent of the Southern Conference, as 
well as by other Conference officials, 
Quigley announced. 

The site of the tournament, which 
will supplant the Southern Conference 
Tournament staged in previous years, 
has not yet been decided upon. College 
Park, Md., Washington, D. C. and 
Columbia, S. C. are under consideration. 



Dean S. S. Steinberg of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland College of Kngineer- 
ing, returned from a goodwill mis.sion 
of two and one-half months in Central 
and South America and the West Indies. 
He traveled as special representative of 
the Department of State making a sur- 
vey of engineering education and the 
engineering profession in (Juatemala, 
Kl Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, 
Bolivia, Paraguay, Dominican Republic 
and Haiti. During the course of his 
trip he was awarded 10 diplomas, being 
named honorary professor of the Uni- 
versity of San Carlos in Guatemala, the 
University of El Salvador, the Central 
University of Honduras, the University 
of San Andres in La Paz and the Tech- 
nical University of Oruro, both in 
Bolivia, the National University of 
Paraguay and the University of Haiti. 
He was also named honorary member 
of the national engineering societies of 
El Salvador, Honduras and the Domini- 
can Republic. 

In addition to representing the De- 
partment of State, Dean Steinberg was 
also the oflficial representative of all the 
engineering schools and the engineering 
societies of the United States. This trip 
supplements a similar one he took under 
the same auspices in 1945 when he 
visited the other 12 Latin American 
republics. At that time he was honored 
by Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, 
Colombia and Mexico. 


"A Look At Extension" and "A Re- 
view of Soil Conservation Work" were 
the themes for the annual conference of 
the University of Maryland Extension 
Service and State personnel of the U. S. 
Soil Conservation Service which was 
held in Annapolis. 

The conference began with introduc- 
tory remarks by Dr. T. B. Symons, Dean 
of the College of Agriculture and Direc- 
tor of the Extension Service. "The In- 
ternational Situation and Its Impact at 
Home" presented by D. A. Fitzgerald, 
Director of Food for the Economic Co- 
operation Administration (ERP) was 
the topic under discussion. 

Miss Venia M. Kellar, Assistant Di- 
rector of Extension presided at a meet- 
ing of the home agents session as they 
discussed questions such as the rural 
family's living outlook, the need for 
consumer education, how timely eco- 
nomic facts can be presented effectively 
to farm people, and effective radio pro- 
grams. Highlighting the men's session 
was a report from the State Soil Con- 
servation Committee, "Land Use Capa- 
bility Maps and the Technical Guide," 
"Development of Soil Conservation Dis- 
tricts," and a "Report on Japanese 

Beetle and Corn Borer Control." A pet- 
acquainti'd dance was held in the eve- 

Soil Conservation Service personnel 
inspected soil conservation work in the 
Anne Arundel district, with Kdward M. 
Davis, state conservationist, in charge. 
Members of the Extension Service 
studied ways and means of improving 
their services to Maryland farmers and 

A special panel of farmers, home- 
makers, and agricultural writers dis- 
cussed "What We Expect From the Ex- 
tension Sei-vice," and R. W. Miller, of 
Washington, D. C. outlined "Public Re- 
lations for the Extension Service." 

The two services met separately for 
a discussion of current administrative 
problems and increased production. The 
annual conference luncheon was held in 
the Severn Room, Carvel Hall, with Dr. 
H. C. Byrd. President of the University 
of Maryland, presiding. Greetings were 
delivered by Governor William Preston 
Lane. Jr. Frank Peck, Managing Direc- 
tor of the Farm Foundation. Chicago, 
was the feature speaker. 


(Concluded from page 2) 
lished three traditions, (1) an Annual 
Banquet held in honor of the Senior 
Class of the College of Education, (2) 
an Alumni Award to the outstanding 
man and coed student in the College of 
Education, and (3) a Scholarship Fund 
to aid worthy students of that College. 

Included in the business completed 
during the annual meeting were the re- 
ports of the various committees, the 
election of Board Members to fill va- 
cancies of those retiring and the amend- 
ment of the Constitution. Also, of in- 
terest to all present was the opportunity 
to see the large plaque being presented 
by the Education Alumni as a perma- 
nent trophy upon which will be inscribed 
annually the names of the Seniors in the 
College of Education who are the re- 
cipients of the Annual achievement 
award. This large wooden plaque, 2' x 3', 
bound in copper was still uncompleted 
but its beauty impressed all who viewed 
it. After the necessary carvings have 
been finished on it, the plaque will be 
placed in the main corridor of the Edu- 
cation Building, opposite the main en- 
trance to the Building. 

The Chapter's Constitution was 
amended to designate the three officers 
of the Board, the President, Vice Presi- 
dent and the Secretary-Treasurer as 
the Chapter's Representatives on the 
Alumni Council. Prior to the change, 
the President and the Secretary- 
Treasurer plus one elected member of 
the Board filled such positions.

bers will replace Mrs. Portia Filbert "24. 
Mrs. Lucile Laws Smith '3(i and Harry 
E. Hasslinger '33 whose terms expired 
this year. Miss Jean Williams '48, 

Washington, D. C. was also elected to 
the Board of Directors to fill the un- 
expired term of Mrs. Agnes Gingell 
Turner '33, who submitted her resigna- 
tion due to her inability to continue 
active participation on the Board. Mrs. 
Turner's resignation was accepted with 
regret for she had contributed much to 
the growth of the Chapter, having 
served also as a member of the Steering 
Committee which planned the activation 
of the Education Chapter. 

In accordance with the provisions of 
the Chapter's by-laws, the following 
were elected to the Nominating Com- 
mittee to serve for one year: Mrs. 
Lucile Laws Smith, Dr. George Kabat, 
Harry E. Hasslinger, Stewart McCaw 
and Thomas Mont. 

Prior to adjournment the Education 
Alumni were privileged to hear a short 
talk by Dr. Harold Benjamin, the Dean 
of the College of Education who is 
revered by the Alumni and students of 
the College. The members expressed 
their deep appreciation to Dr. Benjamin 
for his untiring efforts and invaluable 
assistance in furthering the activities 
of the Education Alumni. 

Immediately following the Annual 
Meeting, the Board of Directors held a 
brief meeting to elect officers for the 
coming year. Ramon Grelecki '43, who 
had served as Vice President during the 
past year was designated as President 
to succeed Harry E. Hasslinger '33, who 
retired from the Board. Warren Rab- 
bitt '31 became the Vice President, and 
Mrs. Mildred Smith Jones '22 replaced 
Mrs. Lucile Laws Smith '36 who retired

Charter Day 

Charter Day is January 20, 1949. 
Grass does not grow on a busy street 
and as we bring down the curtain on our 
Homecoming for 1948 we are already 
laying plans for another major func- 
tion. The date of January 20 should be 
circled on your calendar so you will be 
sure to be present for Charter Day at 
the Lord Baltimore Hotel in Baltimore. 
This will be a feature for 1949 and we 
want you to participate with us in a 
grand renewal of an old custom. As we 
say good-bye to Homecoming, we pre- 
pare to say Hello to you at Charter Day.

.Arthur I. Bell, .\lumni President, in 
a letter to Miss Sarah E. Morris, Presi- 
dent of the New York Club, made the 

following comments concerning Charlie 
Keller Day. 

"I hasten to compliment you, Don 
Kieffer and the New York group on the 
beautiful manner in which the Keller 
Day was handled. We in Maryland are 
still speechless in admiration for the 
pre-publicity which you secured for the 
event, and the Alumni of the University. 
I don't know when I have spent a more 
pleasant day personally. Please accept 
my sincerest thanks and congratula- 

.Martha Keller Thanks 

Mrs. Keller, writing for herself and 
for Charlie who was still on the playing 
field at the time, expressed appreciatior 
for the Keller Day program to Presi- 
dent Sarah Morris and the many alumni 
friends as follows: 

"I have not yet recovered from the 
most wonderful week-end. Really it wag 
such a wonderful day for Charlie. We 
do thank you so much, and we want you 
to know how much we appreciated it.^' 
I find it hard to express myself after 
that occasion. It was such a grand 
tribute to Charlie. We do want every- 
one who took part in it to know we do 
sincerely appreciate it. I know it took 
a lot of work on the part of the Com- 
mittee. I would like you to extend our 
thanks to all concerned. I want you to 
know and everyone else who had a part 
in the Day — that we appreciate it very 
very much." 

Lowell Thomas Excerpts 

Lowell Thomas, in a national broad- 
cast had this to say of Charlie Keller: 

"Keller Day at the Yankee Stadium. 
'King Kong' Keller, they call him — the 
mighty slugger from Maryland, — to be 
honored by the fans. Many stories are 
told about the strong boy from Mary- 
land, the dark, heavy featured Keller, 
who looks so formidable that when he 
joined the Yankees, one of the players 
asked: 'Did they sign you or did they 
trap you?' His enormous hands, he 
says, were developed by milking twelve 
cows every morning. 

"After the Nineteen Thirty-Nine 
World Series when the cry was, 'Break 
up the Yankees,' a Cincinnati player 
.said: 'Break up the Yankees nothing. 
I'd be happy if they'd just break up 

"They say the great Yankee outfielder 
is one player who never broke a train 
ing rule. But he puts so much of him 
self into every game that he is oftei 
injured. This season alone — a dislocate< 
spine, and a broken hand. 

"When they told him recently tha 
they wanted to hold a Keller Day at th 
stadium he shook his head sadly an' 
said: 'Why me? I'm no hero.' The 
when they insisted, he said. 'Well, 
don't want anything. I'm doing oka\ 
But, you might offer a scholarship s 
some kid can go to my old school, th 
University of Maryland.' 

"And that's why many Marylandei 
were at Yankee Stadium on Keller Da; 
including Senator Tydings, Secretar 
for Air Symington, and General Vai 
denberg, head of the Air Force, and 
host of others."

Aeronaulical Engineering 

THE University of Maryland Wind 
Tunnel Laboratory was constructed 
to combine aeronautical development 
and testing for government and indus- 
try with laboratory instruction and re- 
search for engineering students. It 
forms the first completed unit of the 
new Glenn L. Martin College of Engi- 
neering and Aeronautical Sciences. An 
exterior view of the building is shown 
at left above. 

The laboratory is completely self con- 
tained with offices, a classroom and a 
model shop in addition to the wind 
tunnel. There are two bedrooms for 
the accommodation of engineers and 
other technical personnel from outside 
agencies. A cutaway view of the labora- 
tory, showing some of these features, 
appears at the right, above. 

The wind tunnel is of the closed 
throat horizontal return type, as shown 
at left, below. The air is circulated 
around a rectangular circuit by a giant

electric fan consisting of a 19-foot pro- 
peller driven by a 2200 horsepower 
motor. The circuit is carefully designed 
to reduce fiictional resistance to a mini- 
mum with hanehubbed interior surfaces, 
gradual changes in section and crescent 
shaped guide vanes in the corners. Per- 
forated pipes extend vertically from the 
floor to ceiling within the guide vanes. 
Cooling water, sprayed through the per- 
forations, impinges upon the interior 
surfaces of the vanes and picks up heat 
from the air passing over the outside 
of the vanes. Li this way the circulating 
air is cooled in each of the four corners 
to offset the heating that results from 
fiictional effects. A view of the turning 
vanes from the upstream side in the 
corner following the propeller is shown 
at right, below. 

The working section is located at the 
narrowest part of the circuit where the 
wind speed is highest, reaching a maxi- 
mum value of over 300 miles per hour. 
The working section with inside dimen- 
sions of 11 feet in width and 7 feet 9 
inches in height, is large enough to

8 feet in wing: span. A model of a swept- 
wing figrhter mounted on the model 
supports is shown in upper left. The 
turntable in the floor of the tunnel 
permits the rotation of the model about 
a vertical axis to any desired angle of 
yaw to the airstreani. 

Most of the work of the tunnel is con- 
cerned with the resultant force exerted 
on models by the motion of air over the 
exterior surfaces. Models are mounted 
on a weighing system, called the wind 
tunnel balance, which evaluates this 
force by measuring force and moment 
components. Thus the six component 
balance reads lift, drag and side force 
and pitching, yawing and rolling mo- 
ment. The system of levers, links and 
weighing scales that make up most of 
the balance system is shown at upper 
center. The scales are of the i-emote 
indicating type with indicators at the 
main control board. 

The main control board is the nerve 
center of the laboratory. Here the 
operator may control the balance sys- 
tem, the position of the model, the air 
speed, the operation of small propellers 
on the model and the printing and 
recording of the data. A general view 
of the control board is shown at upper 
right. The equipment at the left is 
designed to indicate and automatically 
punch the balance readings into Inter- 
national Business Machine cards when- 

ever the operator presses a control but- 
ton. This facilitates the use of IBM 
machines for the large amount of 
mathematical work involved in correct- 
ing and reducing the data to a form 
suitable for application to full-scale

The two structures shown at lower 
right are associated with the water 
circulated through the guide vanes. The 
cooling tower on the left extracts heat 
from the circulating water and the

The model shop is shown at upper left 
on opposite page. The facilities are un- 
usually complete for wood working, 
metal working and sheet metal work. 

The instruments used in calibrating 
the wind stream of the tunnel are 
shown at upper center and upper right 
of page 3. All of them except the model 
wings were designed and constructed 
by the wind tunnel staff. The wings 
were supplied by the Glenn L. Martin 

The wind tunnel and its balance sys- 
tem are now being calibrated and it is 
expected that the actual testing will 
begin in a few weeks. A contract has 
been signed with the Glenn L. Martin 
Company for over half of the available 
tunnel time and the University is at 
present negotiating a contract with the 
Navy for a part of the remaining time. 

Like most undertakings of this mag- 
nitude, the design and construction was 
carried out by a number of organiza- 
tions and individuals: the Glenn L. Mar-

Cooper ami his Wind Tunnel Group, 
performed most of the aerodynamic de- 
sijrn; North American Aviation Com- 
pany was most generous in supplying 
detailed blueprints of their tunnel and 
:'atterns for the propeller hub; the 
Vustin Company designed and con- 
structed the building and shops; and the 
University has coordinated the work 
and made the design decisions. Dr. J. E. 
Younger, chairman of the Mechanical 
Engineering Department, represented 
the University in the formative stages 
of the project and made many of the 
major contributions to the design. 

The laboratory will meet its overhead 
and operating expenses through charges 
made for tunnel time. Students of the 
University, particularly those of gradu- 
ate level, will share in the benefit from 
modern facilities and instruction by 
aeronautical engineers and research 
workers familiar with current thought. 
It is hoped that the wind tunnel labora- 
tory will become a valuable part of the 
Glenn L. Martin College of Engineering 
and Aeronautical Sciences.

820,913,392 Soii«ilit for IiiiproveiiH^nts and New Facilities 

By William McDonald 

ABUILDINCi expansion program 
budget of $20,913,392 has been 
submitted to the State Planning Com- 
mission by Dr. H. C. Byrd for the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. 

As presented, the i)lan represents a 
$1,200,000 increase 
over the $19,716,000 
program submitted 
last summer. Dr. 
Byrd explained 
that the increase 
was due to higher 
construction costs 
and to newly added 

In placing his 
plan before the 
Commission, Dr. 
Byrd emphasized 
the immediate and 
urgent need of all 
improvements call- 
ed for in the pro- 
Mr. Af\cDonald g-iam, pointing out 
the seam-bursting growth of the Uni- 
versity over the past two decades. 

In the past 20 years the enrollment 
has increased from 1287 to 10,719 and 
the faculty from 131 to 750. Yet, Dr. 
Byrd observed, some of the departments 
are still occupying the facilities they 
had in 1928. 

This most recent effort by Dr. Byrd 
to improve the University and the deter- 
mination on his part to see it a reality, 
are typical of the foresight and initia- 
tive with which Dr. Byrd has removed 
Maryland from the ranks of agricultural 
colleges and placed it among the great 
state universities of America. 

From Two Sources 

Of the total budget, $16,543,392 is 
requested in state appropriation, with 
the remaining $4,460,000 to come from 
other sources and to be used in self- 
liquidating projects that would be paid 
for from student fees. 

Roughly the plan calls for the fol- 

Buildings and improvements at Col- 
lege Park to total $9,515,792 and to be 
financed by state appropriation. 

A total of $2,650,000 worth of proj- 
ects in the Baltimore professional 

Capital improvements of $3,755,000 
at Princess Anne, the Negro branch of 
the University. 

A $60,000 seafood technological labo- 
ratory and a $30,000 tobacco research 
farm at Crisfield. 

Poultry, livestock, and horticultural 
farms and laboratories at Salisbury, 
costing $129,000. 

An $84,500 animal husbandry farm 
in Howard county. 

Dr. Byrd further revealed that he 
plans to suggest to the Legislature next 
year that some kind of State authority

". . . another effort on the part of Dr. Byrd to mox'e the University steadily forarard etui to continue 
it as one of the greatest state uni:ersities in the land." 

be established under which the Univer- 
sity could borrow money for self-liqui- 
dating projects. This plan would work 
somewhat like the system the state uses 
whereby toll fees arc used to pay off 
loans made for bridges or roads. 

Further Needs 
If such a system can be worked out. 
Dr. Byrd explained that the University 
has immediate need of five men's dormi- 
tories, three women's dormitories, a 
laundry, a student union building, and a 
student and faculty center in Baltimore. 
Twelve fraternity and sorority houses 
at College Park also would come under 
this plan. 


As an example of the need of projects 
called for under the proposed plan and 
of how a self-liquidating project would 
work, the President cited the Student 
Union Building. 

"This will pay for itself through 
profits from a cafeteria in the building 
and through a special fee charged stu- 
dents for the use of the building," he 

This building also would be a centci 
for student activity on the campus. It 
would house the post office, student pub- 
lications, offices for student chaplains 
and rooms for their related work, am 
headquarters for student organizations 

Princess Anne Plans 

Dr. Byrd also made a special appeal 
for all of the appropriation asked for 
Princess Anne, eniphasizintr it by say- 
inp that if the whole appropriation had 
to be cut the University would prefer to 
preserve the full $:?.755,000 for Princess 
Anne and reduce the proposed budget 
for Collejie Park or possibly Baltimore. 

This development is necessary, he ex- 
plained, in order that Maryland may 
provide educational opportunities for 
Neproes on the land-grant college 
equivalent to those for whites. 

The Princess Anne program includes: 

A $450,000 agriculture building, a 
$300,000 library, a $275,000 home eco- 
nomics building, a mechanical arts 
building at $325,000, and a $450,000 
central heating plant. These estimates 
include equipment and a small audi- 
torium in the agriculture building. 

Also included in the plan are a dining 
hall, two mens' and one women's dormi- 
tories, swine barns, dairy, cattle, and 
sheep barns, poultry plant, laundry, cot- 
tages for faculty and a president's 
house, head house and green houses, 
student activities building, men's field 
house, sewage disposal plant, brick 
veneer apartments, landscaping of land, 
and extension of sewerage, water, and 
heat lines. 

Improvements listed include comple- 
tion of athletic field, and an addition to 
the present agriculture building to be 
used as general science building. A 
$90,000 purchase of additional land also 
was included. 

"This," said Dr. Byrd, "is solely for 
the purpose of providing a quality of 
work for negroes desiring education in 
the various fields of agriculture, home 
economics, and mechanical arts and 
engineering that will be equivalent to 
that provided at College Park." 

Necessary Step 

Dr. Byrd added that with work at 
Princess Anne and College Park in the 
land grant fields under the control of 
the University, it is believed that re- 
search and graduate studies could so 
be integrated that the University would 
not encounter any great difficulties in 
meeting the racial problem. 

The rapidly increasing recognition of 
Maryland as one of the country's fore- 
imost institutions is evidenced not only 
in its rapidly increasing enrollment, but 
also in its attraction for students from 
all parts of the earth, and the current 
proposal before the Planning Commis-

A better understanding of the Aimi- 
veisaiy may be obtained from the fol- 
lowing excerpts taken from an earlier 
Charter Day Program: 

"Our heritage has been worthy and 
inspiring. Founded in 1807, The C!ollege 
of Medicine of Maryland, by a further 
enactment of the Legislature, in 1812, 
emerged into the University of Mary- 
land empowered to add Faculties of 
Divinity, Law and Arts and Sciences; 
a project, at that time, too ambitious to 
be realized. Consider, however, that 
since then the Medical School has been 
in continuous existence, and each year 
has never failed to graduate Doctors of 
Medicine to serve the people of Mary- 
land. Law from its nebulous begitming 
in 1813, did not begin regular instruc- 
tions until 1823. Dentistry from scat- 
tered Lectures in 1837 was the founda- 
tion of the oldest Dental School in the 
world. Under the aegis of the University 
of Maryland, the Maryland College of 
Pharmacy had its origin in 1841. Just 
fifty years ago w-as founded the School 
of Nursing, whose graduates have since 
ministered with skill and mercy to so 
many. It was not until 1920 that the 
vision of "The Founders" was finally 
fulfilled by the union of these schools 
with the Maryland State College, to 
form the University of Maryland as 
now constituted. May she long and hon- 
orably continue "to produce the most 
beneficial results to the State at large, 
by instilling into the minds and hearts 
of the citizens the principles of science 
and good morals." 


Barbara Lee Hudson, Maryland '48, is 
now enrolled in the Special Course for 
College Women at the Katharine Gibbs 
School in New York.

where is the man who has so much as 
to be out of danger?"

Alumni Council Meeting Held In Baltimore 

THK annual meetiiiK of the Univer- 
.sity of Maryland Alumni Council 
was held in Baltimore on November 12 
and featuied the election of Dr. Arthur 
1. Bell as President of the Association 
and Mr. C. V. Koons Vice-President. 
Their unanimous election followed the 
report of the Nominating Committee 
presented by Mrs. Hazel Tenney 
Tuemmler. Both officers were reluctant 
to accept the nomination since they felt 
strongly that such action might estab- 
lish a precedent which would be ex- 
tremely undesirable in future years. 
Since these two had served only a por- 
tion of the year and the plans which 
they have developed had not had suffi- 
cient time to reach completion the entire 
Council felt their continuance in office 
essential to the welfare of the young 
alumni organization. 

In accepting the Presidency Dr. Bell 
reemphasized the responsibility which 


Arthur I Bell, D.D.S., pictured above, was 
re-elected chairman of the Alumni Council. 

he felt had been given him and ex- 
pressed appreciation for the complete 
and unselfish report given by Council 
representatives, officers of the school 
Associations and alumni in general. He 
repeated his concern over the possibility 
of establishing a precedent by accepting 
a second term. 

Mr. Koons stated it was a pleasure to 
continue as an officer of the Alumni 
Association because he felt the Asso- 
ciation has a glorious opportunity to do 
a great job for the University and the 
people of the State. He credited Dr. Bell 
with the leadership which has enabled 
the organization to progress so rapidly 
and pledged himself to assist in any 
way possible to further the objectives 
established by the Alumni Council. 

A resolution of appreciation for the 
officers of the Association during the 
past year was presented by the Nomi- 
nating Committee and the Council mem- 
bers voted to make this resolution a 
I)art of the permanent record. The reso- 
lution appears in this issue. 

Chestei' W. Tawney, Chairman of the 
Scholarship Committee, presented the 
revised plan for alumni scholarships, 
and the Council voted to present a stu- 
dent play or other function in Baltimore 
as an initial step to raise funds for the 
Scholarship i)rogram. Consideration was 
also given the use of a percentage of an 
alumni contribution for scholarships to 
the University. The Committee was 
authorized to proceed in the develop- 
ment of a complete report for considera- 
tion and action at the next Council 

Colonel Mahlon N. Haines, as Chair- 
man of the Committee on Publications 
and Publicity, reviewed the advertising 
program for "MARYLAND" magazine 
and requested its continuance. Council 
members were urged to back the ad- 
vertising program and support from 
alumni who know of advertising pros- 
l^ects was urged.

high praise by the Council for his efforts

in placing the magazine on a basis 
where it is now generally recognized as 
the finest publication of its kind in the 
country. In addressing the Council he 
stressed the need for additional alumni 
news and recommended that future 
issues go only to those alumni who sub- 
scribe. It was his feeling a good ad- 
vertising program plus support from 
members of the Alumni Association 
would enable the magazine to pay its

President, Alumni Asiociation 

IT is with a feeling- of nenuine pride 
and deep obligation that I begin 
this term as President of the Alumni 
Association of the University of Mary- 
land. The responsibility which we have 
to the future citizens of our State and 
to the many who hold degrees from our 
University is more than great. With 
this thought in mind we begin the 
second year in the life of the Alumni 
Council and I believe it is proper that 
all alumni become more conscious of the 
part the University plays in the well 
being of the people of our State. 

At a period when the University is 
seeking funds to carry out the program 
for the next calendar year, greater at- 
tention should be drawn not only to 
the tremendous increase in the cost of 
physical expansion, salaries, and all the 
many other costs that are required to 
run the University, but also to the im- 
portance of the University to the wel- 
fare of the State. It is interesting to 
note that to no other items in the State 
budget has the press given so much at- 
tention and to no other item has the 
press given such prominence as to the 
requests of the University for its needs 
for the next year. It might be well, 
therefore, to inquire as to what value 
the State receives for its citizens from 
this money which enables the Univer- 
sity to carry on. We cannot begin to 
measure the value to the State to have 
within its borders such professional 
schools as Medicine, Dentistry, Phar- 
macy, Agriculture, Law, and the other 
six that go to make up a great institu- 
tion. In their connection it is interest- 
ing to note that of the forty-eight states 
only thirty-two have medical schools 
and twenty-three have dental schools. 
The young men and women of those 
states who want to attend one of those 
professional schools are at a great dis- 

At the present time when there is 
such a critical shortage of physicians 
and dentists, rural Maryland is much 
better supplied than the rural districts 
of most other states largely because of 
the existence of the University of Mary- 

And what value can be placed in hav- 
ing available the equipment to give 
every graduate of a Maryland public 
high school the opportunity to secure 
at modest costs a college education. 

In being conscious of these facts we 
as alumni of the University of Mary- 
land can have a pride in our activities 
as such not only because of our interest 
in our Alma Mater but because we can 
feel that through our actions in promot- 
ing the University we are making a 
definite contribution to higher educa- 
tion and to the general welfare of our

Baltimore, Maryland 

FEBRUARY 10,1949 


Excellent Program Assured 








THIS editoiial is not intended to 
have any political sijrnificance. The 
pages of Miirylaud are not the place for 
politics. It is not intended to crow over 
the defeat of Governor Dewey or the 
victory of President Truman. 

Rather, it is felt that a bit of non- 
partisan comment by a nonpolitical ob- 
server is quite in order if for no other 
reason than to add to Americana, vin- 
tage 1948, as a sort of a modern chapter 
on the .study of American civilization, 
and to polish up a few time honored 
axioms as well as explode a few 
fallacies that have been accepted as 
guide rules in our tojisy-turvy and ztt 
disturbed post World War II de- 
sign for living. The purpose in 
these lines is to call attention to 
the importance of the stable, solid 
things in life, to the importance of 
standing on your own feet and 
doing your own thinking without 
being swayed by the froth of wishes 
that are father to the thought. 

The oversigned has spent much 
of his life in the uniformed service, 
where a fellow does not vote and is 
not supposed to have political 
affiliations, topped by residence in 
the District of Columbia, where 
you don't vote either. 

Prior to the election, all the polls, 
estimates and crystal gazers, in the 
parlance of the sports world, allow- 
ed you to "write your own ticket" 
on a Dewey victory. The experts 
told you that Maryland, a Southern 
state, would definitely go for Mr. Tru- 
man and that Wisconsin, the state 
where, in a Ripon schoolhouse, the Re- 
publican party first saw the light of 
day, was in the bag for Dewey. The 
reverse turned out to be true in both 

As the early returns began to come in 
anxious listeners were told that "Mr. 
Truman can credit his defeat to the 
State's rights states in the South, who 
would rather see Truman lose than be 
'team players' for their party." The 
prognosticators also told you that when 
Truman conceded defeat he could credit 
it off to a disgruntled Henry Wallace 
and his influence on the Northern Cali- 
fornia vote. 

The experts enjoyed a great era of 
experting and they laid it on cocksure 
of themselves to the extent that many 
in government jobs were likened to the 
rats leaving a sinking ship. 

That recalls the story of the Western 
bad man who walked into a frontier 
saloon, both six shooters drawn and 
loared, "I'm drinking alone in this joint. 

All you clear out." They 

all cleared out but one little fellow,

meek and quiet, who remained at his 
place in the corner and remarked to the 
two gun man, "Gee, podner, thar war a 
LOT of 'em, warn't thar!" 

The experts made it a i)oiiit to tell

you who would lose what Government 
job as soon as Governor Dewey took 
over at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., 
and the papers told of those who sold 
their homes and pulled out of Washing- 
ton, convinced that they were through 
and that the crystal gazers were right. 

Over and over again the papers re- 
ferred to President Truman as "a nice 
little fellow who is not big enough for 
the job" and "nobody hates Harry Tru- 
man, but few figure he could equal 
Dewey as a Chief Executive,'' "there 
seems to be no further need for holding 
up an affectionate farewell to Harry 
Ti'uman, who will go down in history 


"Do not cross your bridges until you 

get fo them." 

"Do not count your chickens before 

they ore hatched." 

"Judge not, lest you be judged." 
"What fools these mortals be." 
"Never bet against a champion; then 

you only lose once in each career." 

as the President that nobody hated." 

The New York papers in particular 
laid it on heavily and many in Wash- 
ington looked for the influx of New 
York talent to straighten out the afl'airs 
of the nation. That is not exceptional. 
New Yorkers generally have the repu- 
tation of harboring scant respect for 
anything North, South, East or West 
of Manhattan, in spite of the fact that 
a few hayshakers, like Lincoln for one, 
didn't do badly at all in the affairs 
and histories of the world. 

There are those who will tell you 
that the biggest rubes in the world 
come from Manhattan. That they'll 
pull up stalks of corn expecting to 
find succulently laden cobs dangling 
from the roots, the while they do 
not know enough about their own 
city to tell you what streets bound 
Central Park or what body of 
water, connects the Harlem with 
the Hudson to make Manhattan an 
island. Real smart fellows oftimes 
outsmart themselves. 

When a two World War veteran, 
knowing the kinship of those who 
served in uniform, commented that 
Mr. Truman's Woild War I record 
would do him no harm among vot- 
y ing veterans, that observation was 
labeled, "Baloney! The war is 
over!" (Wars are never over for 
those who fought in them.) 

Not long ago a group of Marine 
Corps Reserve ofliicers called at the 
White House for the purpose of making 
President Truman an Honorary Member 
of McRoa (Marine Corps Resei-ve Offi- 
cers Association). Reaction to that call 
included, "You fellows are sure sticking 
your necks out; you're backing the 
wrong horse." During that visit Mr. 
Truman commented on the fact that, as 
President of a Post World War I Re- 
serve Officers Association, which unit 
had included Marines, he was eligible 
for membership and added that "As 
Commander in Chief I am also eligible 
and we'll see more about that aftti 
November 2nd." 

Somehow the visitors got the idea 
that the so-called "little fellow in the 
White House,'' like the fellow in the 
corner of the Western frontier saloon 
referred to above, was not being stani- 
lieded by expert prognostications. 

The term "The Little Fellow" has be- 
come a term of esteem and respect not 
unlike "The Little Corporal" as applied 
to Napoleon Bonaparte. 

The world can now better appreciate 
that actual "little fellows" do not come 
up like Mr. Truman did. "The Little 
Fellow" was so big that he came mighty 


close to hoin^: the only proniinoiit i)oli- 
tician who believed lOO'Y in vietoiy. 

He won fairly aTid siiuarely and al- 
most sin>rle handedly. He did not sneak 
in on a pass. Unlike (Governor Dewey, 
he fought three opponents. Like a baek- 
field football carrier the play was to 
beat a "mousetrap," composed of Dewey, 
Thurmond and Wallace. 

Truman battled with cold courajre 
and determination and won the award 
that so often };oes to a hard fighter. 

Recall the scene in a newsreel well 
before the Republican or Democratic 
conventions, with Mr. Truman saying, 
"The ne.xt President will be a Democrat 
and you are looking at him right now!" 
In Ireland some folks believe in 
leprechauns and pixies. In middle 
Europe some believe in the "zwerge" 
that live under the roots of trees. In 
Hawaii some believe in menehunis, the 
"little people" that skip around among 
the ti leaves. 

We should not rate such beliefs as 
utterly primitive and ridiculous because 
here in the U.S.A. '48, we have some 
very intelligent people who believed in 
polls and pollsters, crystal gazei's and 
axe grinders with about as much to 
recommend them as a witch's cauldron. 
Yet they had a lot of people believing 
that a victory for Mr. Truman would 
constitute the greatest upset since 
David took Goliath. 

Americans on farms, in the mines, at 
the wheels of taxicabs, in the factories, 
war veterans, housewives, read head- 
lines and listen to the radio. Then they 
form their own opinions and vote ac- 
cordingly. That is America. 

Smart and solid politicians and 
political thinkers agree that, to win a 
national election, it is necessary to 
count upon voters who will jump the 
party lines and that, more and more, 
Americans vote for the 'man' rather 
than submit to being regimented and 
herded into voting the party ticket re- 
gardless. Being told just how to vote 
makes Americans resentful. They do 
not like being dictated to. During the 
war years many Americans willingly 
submitted to the discipline of the armed 
services. They wallingly died in the 
execution of orders. At home Americans 
were dictated to by food, fuel and other 
ration boards. They took that because 
there was a war on. But they do not 
like that sort of business in peacetime. 
A very good formula for victory seems 
to be to have "experts" pick you to lose. 
In the meantime a great proportion 
of American thought is reflected in the 
Washington Star's . . . "It is not the 
function of the press to tell the people 
how to vote but rather to report the 
news and express such opinions as it 
may have." 

That quotation is a good one for stu- 
dents of journalism to remember. 

Mr. Truman's speeches were home 
spun. He spoke like an honest, sincere 
fellow, reflecting the courage of his con- 
victions. He made his fight on what he 
believed to be right. He disregarded the 
sniping on his flanks by States righters 
and W^allaceites. He even repeated the 
time-honored, "I would rather be 
RIGHT than President." The people ob-

viously liked a plain American fellow 
for President and when his team left 
him out on the limb to fight his own 
battle the people liked him for that too. 

There are those who will tell you that 
the "real America" is in the Middle 
West and there are those who greet such 
an assertion with derision. The Presi- 
dent's campaign speeches were typically 
"middle West." And his opposition 
pointed him up as a small timer, holding 
a job that was over his head. Over and 
over we heard the term, "The Little 
Fellow in the W'hite House." 

To the tune of the greatest 'upset' in 
American political history the people 
that do the electing obviously liked "The 
Little Fellow." 

The experts? They're irrepressible. 
Being an expert is like freckles or buck 
teeth. You have 'em or you don't. No 
sooner had the experts moaned through 
the greatest ego deflation since King 
Canute defied the tide (He also got his 
shirt wet) when they began experting 
as to "why" Mr. Truman won. That 
answer was supplied by Horace X. 
Clambake, the sage of the Eastern She', 
who made it simple and without lengthy 
reckoning, like this, "Truman was elect- 
ed on account of he got the most votes." 

Under the heading "College Park and 
An International Agency." the Balti- 
more Sun printed the following edi- 
torial : — 

The suggestion which has just been 
made by Dr. H. C. Byrd in connection 
with the United Nations Food and Agri- 
cultural Organization is a happy in- 

spiration. If it should be favorably re- 
ceived, and prove practical, it would 
undoubtedly enhance the position of the 
university in several fields in which it 
is already strong. 

The suggestion arises out of the fact 
that the Food and Agricultural Organi- 
zation (usually called the FAO) is with- 
out a permanent home. Dr. Byrd has 
suggested that the campus at College 
Park w'ould be an appropriate site for 
its permanent home, and has offered to 
discuss the possibilities. 

The FAO is one of the several an- 
cillary organizations of the United Na- 
tions. Food supply is the first concern 
of the human race, and the FAO came 
into being because questions involving 
the world's food resources are most 
definitely the concern of the United 
Nations. That is the pressure 
of population on the world's available 
food resources is one of the prime causes 
of war. 

When a nation cannot feed itself, it 
becomes automatically a danger spot. 
And the world is confronted by the ugly 
fact that, as its population continues to 
increase, it presses ever more insist- 
ently against the world limits of food 
production. That is to say, the danger 
spots are increasing in number. 

It is true that thiough advances in 
scientific knowledge and technical in- 
genuity the world's food-production pos- 
sibilities have been greatly increased. 
And there are optimists who blithely 
assume that the point will never be 
reached when the world's population 
will actually outrun food supply. But 
the fact remains that there is an abso-

lute limit to the amount of arable land 
available in the world, and that most of 
this land is already in cultivation. 

In truth, the total amount of really 
good arable land is decreasing. For, 
running parallel with scientific and 
technical improvements in agriculture, 
there has been a tragic squandering of 
rich food-producing land by bad culti- 
vation and consequent erosion. In the 
United States, and in some other coun- 
tries, the vital importance of conserving 
the land is coming to be understood 
more and more widely — and none too 
soon. But from the world-wide point of 
view, mankind is still engaged in the 
headlong destruction of its basic re- 
source, which is food-producing land. 

The function of the FAQ is to carry 
on continuing studies of the world food 
situation, so that the human race will 
actually know where it stands at all 
times on the question of its primary 
need. In this work it has the call on the 
ablest geographers, nutritionists, de- 
mographers and agricultural scientists 
of most of the member nations of the 
United Nations. It is an agency not of 
controversy but of study and enlighten- 
ment. Though it is young, already it 
has well justified its existence. 

College Park would be a highly ap- 
propriate location for its headquarters, 
owing to proximity of the campus to the 
headquarters of the Department of 
Agriculture and to the Beltsville Ex- 
periment Station, and owing secondarily 
to the university's own strength in 
some of the fields which are the concern 
of the FAQ. 

From the point of view of the uni- 
versity, the presence of the permanent 
staff of the FAG would be a great value. 
Soon or late, many of the world's most 
eminent students of agricultural-geo- 
graphical problems would find them- 
selves at College Park. The stimulus to 
the faculty and to .^serious students, in 
research and graduate studies, would 
be enormous. 

Dr. Byid has offered a suggestion 
which is genuinely exciting to those 
who would like to see the intellectual 
development at College Park keep pace 
with its physical development. 


The new student directory of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland's College Park 
schools boasts a decided "United Na- 
tions" complexion, showing 130 students 
who are natives of 38 foreign countries 
or United States overseas possessions. 

The directory, compiled and released 

by Registrar Alma H. Preinkert, shows 

students enrolled in numbers as follows 

from the countries indicated, viz: — 

1 Italy

FOR 1949 

1949 IS HERE. What to write as a 
New Year's editorial for a Univer- 
sity publication? 

At first blush it will seem like a willy- 
nilly crazy quilt idea to say that we are 
going to, as a guide for the coming 
year, hold up to University of Maryland 
alumni and students examples of con- 
duct provided by a Prussian General and 
an American baseball pitcher 1 1 

You'll get the grand idea before we 
sign off. 

Von Hindenburg, in Germany before 
World War I, was rated as an old "nut." 
They called him the "old man of the 
Lakes" because he had a crazy plan 
which he said would destroy invading 
armies from Russia by leading them to 
their doom in the Mazurian lakes and 

swamps. He was on the retired list and 
most military men thought he ought to 
stay there! Germany went to war in 

Hindenburg's "old man of the lakes" 
plan was used. The German general 
staff watched with interest. The Rus- 
sian Army was mired, beaten, lost in 
the lakes the "old man of the lakes" 
talked about. 

Old Hindy was then made the chief 
of the German Army. He was a par- 
ticular friend of Kaiser Wilhelm. 

Came the post war overthrow of the 
Kaiser and the launching of the German 
Republic. Most of the German people 
thought they were through with sabre 
rattling war lords. They wanted a Re- 
public. Until Hitler came along they 
had it. 

After one or two elections, the world 
wondered when Hindenburg, the war 
lord, the royalist, the friend of Kaiser 
Bill, was swept into office as President. 

That would be a scoop for the royal- 
ists said those who did not know. Soon 
there would be another Emperor back 
on the throne. 

But they reckoned without Hinden- 
burg. Here was a man who was abso- 
lutely a Kaiserist. No doubt about it. 

But — and it is a big "but" — he had 
taken a solemn obligation to perform 
the duties of a republican president. The 
royalists found no friend in von Hinden- 
burg. He was for the Republic. 

The answer? 

The man had character! 

His oath meant something to him. 

He held up his right hand and swore 
by all that was sacred to him to serve a 

Folks who concluded that the Hinden- 
burg election was a royalist coupe 
simply reckoned without considering 
that the man had CHARACTER! 

So much for Hindenburg. 

In Washington the greatest baseball 
pitcher of all time, the late Walter 
Johnson, in 1936 asked for his release 
and got it. 

For twenty long years he had pitched 
his heart out for Washington. All the 
good things written about great athletes 
being "good to their mothers" and be- 
ing "clean livers" were literally true of 
"Big Barney." He was the living per- 
sonification of an ideal. 

That is why he always will be an idol 
for American youth. 

He asked for his release simply be- 
cause he believed his once great arm 
and stout heart could no longer give his 
team mates and his public their money's 

The man had character! 

Character! Get the word. It is not 
an oily, soft word. It snaps like the 
crack of a whip or the staccato bark of 
a machine gun. 

How do these two fit in as models 
around which to build a New Year's 

The answer again is CHARACTER' 

"Character" calls for the performaia 
of all sorts of duty; the performance ol 
it cheerfully, with full pride in your 
University and what it taught you. 

Just be proud of the work you're i: 
Be proud of the University that pri 


vidod your odiicatioii. It moans soiuo- 

Of course, "// lUtcio Di Gitdii" — tho 
kiss of Judas, — every outfit has its trai- 
tors. Even the Master had his. 

Roosevelt's RouK:h Kiders had de- 
serters and "nuard house suicides." 

But that sort are the rare exceptions 
to prove the rule. 

Be true to your trust. Build CH.VK- 


Von' made a jrood repub- 
lican President because behind the 
squai"e wooden face of him was CH.\R- 

Walter Johnson could probably have 
gone along: pitching: as best he could, 
earning: "big: money" as long- as he 
chose. But CHARACTER told him. 
"Barney, you're not RIGHT!" 

It is not intended to give this editorial 
too much of a Teutonic flavor, but there 
is an old proverb by Goethe that reads, 

"Gelt verloren, nichts verloren, 

"Freunde verloren, viel verloren, 

"Ehre verloren, ALLES verloren." 
Translated that reads, 

"Money lost, nothing- lost, 

"Friends lost, much lost, 

"Honor lost. ALL lost." 

Honor! What a word! Character is 
part of honor even as dignity is part of 
character.— (H. L. M.) 


With the football season over but our 
readers already interested in next year's 
schedule, it might prove of interest to 
print a chaplain's advice to one of his 
pupils, a young- athlete, viz: — 

"I am giving- you the ball, son, and 
naming you quarterback for your team 
in the game of life. I am your coach, so 
I'll give it to you straight. 

"There is only one schedule to play. 
It lasts all your life but consists of only 
one game. It is a long- game with no 
time out and no substitutions. You play 
the whole game — all your life. 

"You'll have a great backfield. You're 
calling the signals but the other three 
in the backfield with you have great 
reputations. They are Faith, Hope and 

"You'll work behind a truly powerful 
line. End to end, it consists of Honesty, 
Loyalty, Devotion to Duty, Self Respect, 
Study, Cleanliness and Good Behavior. 

"The goal posts are the pearly gates 
of heaven. 

"God is the referee and sole official. 
He makes all the rules and there is no 
•ippeal from them. 

"There are ten rules. You know them 
as the Ten Commandments and you 
play them strictly in accordance with 
your own religion. 

"There is also an important ground 
rule. It is 'Do unto others as you would 
have them do unto you.' 

"In this game if you lose the ball 
you also lose the game. 

"Here is the ball. It is your immortal 
soul! Hold onto it. Now, son, get in 
there and pitch! Let's see what you 
can do with it!" 

Miss Clay Keene Rei-iuird who, I'.t.'lT 
to 1!M0. was dubbed "The Hutterwinkle" 
by members of the boxing teams for 
whoni she was mascot, is now a student 
at Holton-.-\rms School. Her grand- 
father, Colonel Heinie Miller, is Mary- 
land's boxing coach. 

About a year ago Holton-Arms' stu- 
dents sent Christmas parcels to school 
children in Vienna, Austria. 

As a result, Luise Strelec, 12-year-old 
student of Quellenstrasse 211/88, Wien 
X, Austria, wrote to Clay Keene. This 
correspondence mounted to healthy pro- 
portions. Soon Clay Keene was sending 
badly needed items to Luise, always ac- 
companied by conjecture as to whether 
the parcels would safely reach their 

Colonel Miller then wrote the Com- 
manding General, U. S. Forces in Aus- 
tria, to ascertain if some member of 
the General's staff might find time to 
call upon the Strelec youngster, ascer- 
tain what she needed, etc., etc. 

Then came a letter from Luise's 
mother, paying high tribute to the 
officer-like and gentlemanly qualities of 
the lieutenant colonel who had sent for 
them and who had later called upon 
them. The Lieutenant Colonel was Rob- 
ei-t L. Walton (Eng. '37), star middle- 
weight boxer on Maryland's first South- 
ern Conference championship ring team. 

Small world, eh? 

To read the Strelec mother's letters 
to Clay Keene, telling the Maryland 
girl that "Luise is inexpressibly over- 
come by gratitude and happiness at you 
having provided for her joy such as we, 
her parents, have been unable to provide 
for many years." is another story. 

The point is that it was made possible 
by Maryland people in Maryland style. 

Bob Walton's address: Lt. Col. Robert 
L. Walton, lA-DP Div., USACA, Hqs., 
USFA, APO 777, c/o P.M., N.Y.C., N.Y. 


The old axiom "it's a small world 
after all" was recently illustrated in an 
incident involving Maryland folk. 


The newsmen who prefer being poor 
prophets rather than good news re- 
porters picked Army's football team to 
steamroll over Navy, quite as Governor 
Dewey was picked to just float into the 
White House on a tidal wave of ballots. 

Some account might well have been 
taken of the two schedules. There is a 
great difference between Army winning 
from Virginia Tech and similar opposi- 
tion to Navy's being turned every which 
way but loose at the hands of Michigan 
and similar powerhouses. 

But tossing such comparisons out of 
the nearest lee porthole there is a great 
lesson for athletes in Navy's heroic and 
astounding tie with Army. The Midship- 
men hadn't won a game. They were to 
be so much dry fodder for the Army 
mule to munch on. Of course the ex- 
perts later came through with the 
hackneyed platitude, "Navy was 'UP'; 
Army was 'down'." 

Well, what made Navy 'up'? 

In the answer lies a tremendously 
valuable object lesson for any athlete 
in ANY branch of sport or, for that mat- 
ter, for any individual in any field of 

The lesson lies in "team morale," 
which embodies team spirit, loyalty and 


devotion to the school, the coach and tht- 
team an<l, what is inon- iin|)ortant, 
loyally to oiie'n nelf. That is si-lf re- 
spect; athletic sc-lf respect if you pleuHo. 
That is the stuff that makes a fellow, 
when he's all in, grit his teeth and fight 
one moi-e round. It provides that extra 
oomph needed to get under a long pass, 
or to stretch a base hit into a hook 
sliding two-bagger. It is great medicine. 
It makes winners out of losers. When 
you've got it you've got something that 
will stand you in good stead in life's 
battle right down to the finish. 

While the Midshii)men, against Army, 
|)laye(l well over their own heads, the 
line-up may well have included greater 
names than those of Baysinger and his 
teammates. An invisible, yet tangible, 
line-up which provides the stuflf that, 
in the future makes the names like 
Baysinger, Smith, Schultz and Levy 
greater than any sports event will ever 
make them. 

On that field at Philadelphia, backing 
up the Baysinger and Scotts was a team 
that mustered, end to end, something 
like this: — 

Jones, "Surrender, I have not yet 
he(/i()i to fight!" 

Lawrence, "Don't give up the ship!" 

Perry, "We have met the enemy and 
they are ours." 

Philip, "Don't cheer boys, the poor 
devils are dying." 

Farragut, "Damn the torpedos, full 
speed ahead!" 

Lansdowne, "Stick to your posts re- 
gardless; we are going through to- 

Taussig, "The Navy is ready NOW!" 

Daly, "Come on you ! Do 

you want to live forever?" 

Decatur, "My Country, right or 
wrong, but, right or wrong, my Coun- 

Dewey, "You may fire, Gridley, when 
you ai-e ready!" 

Scott, "Get the big ones first." 

And if twelve men could be put on the 
field Halsey could be added with, "The 
Navy goes where it d— pleases!" 

Never discount the athletic and com- 
bat value of team spirit, loyalty, high 
morale. When you're down in the dumps, 
weary and discouraged, draw on your 
reserves, that extra "team" that makes 
winners of sure shot losers. It's no 
bunk for wise guys to scoff at, every 
now and then, like Navy this year, 
someone proves it. 

It is the stuff that makes ship's cook 
Snorky Smithers say, "My ship is the 
best ship in the woild!" It is the stuff 
that makes Private Homer Q. Oxen- 
hart, of Company "E" say, "Company 
'E' is the best company in the world!" 

If all hands feel like Snorky and 
Homer, an outfit can come mighty close 
to proving that Snorky and Homer are 
right at that! 

Brush aside the dross of statistics and 
cjTiicism and get down to the pure gold 
of this sometimes derided "school boy 

It might work! It often does and 
never does harm. 

Some outfits have it so thick one can, 
figuratively, slice it with a knife. But 
it's not bologna! 


Nestled among the trees at the northern boundary of the campus stand the barns and other buildings of the agriculture domain which has 
grown to tremendous proportions since the College Park institution was founded more than SO years ago. (Terrapin Foto.) 


Representatives Of Thirty-Two Nations 
Look Over Facilities At College Park 

STUDENTS on their way to classes 
at the University of Maryland 
stopped to watch a colorful group pass 
by— some 30 delegates to the United 
Nations Food and Agriculture Organi- 
zation visiting the College of Agri- 

The delegates, representing fifteen 
countries, were something to see. The 
pink sari of one woman from India 
clashed with the trim grey suit of an- 
other feminine member. 

The gaily checked walking suit of a 
man from Pakistan was in direct con- 
trast to the subdued navy blue suits of 
the French representatives. 

Turban And Sport Coat 

A bearded sikh from India comple- 
mented his turban with a pair of grey 
flannels and a brown sport coat. 

In thought, however, there was little 
dissimilarity. Representatives of hun- 

gry peoples the world over, they had 
come to College Park to inspect new 
equpiment and techniques in the School 
of Agriculture developed to produce 
more and better food. 

The delegates left their bus under the 
watchful eye of Ernest G. Holt, of the 
Department of Agriculture, after a 10- 
mile trip from Washington. They cur- 
rently are engaged ther in a two-week 
conference on food and agricultural 

After each had received an identify- 
ing yellow marigold buttoniere, they 
were shepherded into an assembly room 
for a message of welcome from Dr. T. B. 
Symons, dean of the College of Agri- 

Dr. Symons, representing President 
H. C. Byrd, pointed out that they were 
about to see the teaching methods and 
experimental work of a land-grant col- 

■112 h 

lege, similar to those in practically 
every other state in the Union. 

"Except," Dr. Symons said, "that here 
in Maryland, the only State to which 
this is applicable, all agricultural ac- 
tivity is centered at the university in 
one organization, where it is co-ordi- 
nated with State and Federal agencii 
for full cooperation." 

Heads of departments, after being 
introduced by Dr. Symons, outlined 
briefly what the delegates were about 
to see. 

Broad Discussion 

A question period on the University 
set-up jumped from agriculture specif- 
ically to a broad discussion of American 
educational techniques in which the 
delegates showed great interest. 

Then the group, carefully herded by 
university guides who held them to a 
stop-watch schedule, began their tour. 
Bi-lingual signs, explaining the display.« 
in French as well as English, helped 
those who were hard put to understand 
their American lecturers. 

First stop was the poultry labora- 
tories, where Dr. Morley A. Jull pointed 
out experiments being carried out in 
nutrition, physiology and genetics. 

The jrroiip studied machines which 
autonuitically clean and pick chickens 
and were shown an ejru-washinfr ma- 
chine recently invented by a Univeisity 
of Maryland iiiofcssor. 

From there they moved on to the 
horticulture buildinjr, where tliey in- 
spected a complete miniature cannery 
which is strivinjr to obtain hifiher quali- 
ties of flavor and nutiitioii in canned 

They were n'r^J'tly impressed by a 
mobile laboratory which follows the 
canninp season from area to area to 
obtain samples. 

Various Lan}ruaKes 
While Chinese delejjates scribbled 
hasty notes in the ancient characters of 
their alphabet and Philippine members 
conversed in Spanish, Ur. Symons — 
with cries of "All right, boys, this way. 
This way boys" — led them on to other 

In the agricultural engineering de- 
partment, Prof. Ray Carpenter showed 
them modern American farm machinery 
and his assistants ran tractors and 
demonstrated planters capable of put- 
ting 10,000 plants into the ground an 

In the dairy manufacturing plant 
they capped a study of pasteurizing 
machines and bottling plants with a 
sample dish of chocolate and vanilla 
ice cream, which turned out to be the 
high spot of the program. 

Luncheon, cafeteria style, in the uni- 
versity dining hall, w-as a welcome 
breather for the delegates, who were 
told that the meal was the usual fare 
served students and that they were wel- 
come to as much as they cared to eat. 
In response to a query from one 
worried Philippine member, they were 
assured that washing the dishes after- 
ward would be taken care of by someone 

In a breather before they boarded 
their bus for a trip to the university's 
dairy barns, the delegates found an op- 
portunity to stretch their legs in the 
warm, fall sunlight and talk. 

For-D. B. Paguirigan, chief delegate 
of the Philippine Republic and a gradu- 
ate of both Harvard and the University 
of Connecticut, the tour and the work 
being done here were important. 
Need Machines 
"We need farm machinei'y in the 
Philippines," Mr. Paguirigan said, 
"since the Japanese ate so many of our 
work animals. We are coming back to 
normal again, but the cost of living is 

"We must make our farms produce 
more," he said forcefully, suddenly 
dropping the joking attitude he had 
assumed all morning. 

Pierre Chauard, in blue serge suit and 
horned-rim glasses, is from the French 
Ministry of Food. Like Mr. Paguirigan, 
Mr. Chauard, felt that the food situa- 
tion was getting better but was still 
not good. 

In Paris, his home city, the people 
are receiving possibly 80 percent of 
their prewar food supply, he said. City 
people in Europe are suffering espe- 
cially. There is an acute shortage of 
fats and wheat. 

The Marshall plan is working, Mr. 
Chauard commented, but there must be 
an exchange that works two ways. 

-An exchange of material goods, of, but an exchange of ideas as 
well, he said. 

"Such an exchange is the best way 
to peace," Mr. Chauard said. 

The group visited the dairy barn for 
a study of artificial insemination. 

The group visited a disi)lay of water- 
sheds and four farms in Frederick 
county, including that of Mrs. Nellie 
Thrasher, which was renovated in one 
day last summer to demonstrate con- 

A dinner in Frederick completed the 


Alumni of West Virginia and West- 
ern Maryland joined forces for the West 
Virginia game and a supper reunion in 
Morgantown on November 27. Out of 
the meeting came the formation of a 
West Virginia Alumni Club of the Uni- 
versity of Mai'yland. Dr. L. W. Goche- 
nour of Clarksburg was elected Presi- 
dent and Dr. .J. Frank Williams '.35 Vice- 
President. Dr. Fred V. Beerbower '43 
was elected Secretary by one vote over 
Dr. D. E. Games '19. Dr. Williams is 
from Clarksburg and Dr. Beerbower 
from Kingwood. 

Approximately fifty alumni attended 
the supper at the Moi-gan Hotel and 
heard talks by Head Coach Jim Tatum 
and Alumni Secretary Dave Brigham. 
The main address was given by Dean J. 
Ben Robinson of the University Dental 
School who represented President Byrd 
and the University for the day's func- 
tion. Dr. Robinson reviewed the history 
of the University and its development 
with emphasis on the need for alumni 
backing of the University, its adminis- 
tration and its future development. Dr. 
Gochenour served as Toastmaster and 
pi-eliminary arrangements were under 
the direction of Dr. Charles W. Cox. 

Alumni in attendance included the 
following from West Virginia: Dr. J. P. 
Young, Dr. D. E. Games, Dr. W. F. S. 
Lingur and son William P. Lingur, Dr. 
and Mrs. J. Frank Williams, Dr. and 
Mrs. J. C. Thompson and Dr. Gochenour, 
all of Clarksburg. Present from Mor- 
gantown were: W. C. Comley, Dr. M. B. 
Guerrieri and Dr. Cox. Dr. W. C. 
VanMeter '06 of Petersburg was the 
oldest alumnus present. Others from 
West Virginia were Dr. Dailey M. Mar- 
tin, Romney; Dr. N. P. Baker, Charles- 
ton; Dr. and Mrs. Fred V. Beerbower, 
Kingwood; Dr. T. D. Kauffelt, Hunting- 
ton; Dr. and Mrs. L. A. Romino, Hunt- 
ington; James A. Condry, Elkins; Dr. 
Blair E. Simons, Elkins; and P. E. 
Kerchebal, Kingwood. 

From Maryland came Dr. J. Russel 
Cook, President of the Alleghany 
County Alumni Club; Dr. Albert C. 
Cook, Cumberland; Mr. and Mrs. James 
Bell, Jr., Oakland; Mr. and Mrs. Lewis 
R. Jones, Oakland; Mr. and Mrs. George 
C. Cook, University Park and Mr. 
George Fogg, College Park. 



Dr. W. Arthur Purdum (pictured above). 
Chief Pharmacist of The Johns Hopkins Hos- 
pital, and a graduate of the University of 
Maryland, School of Pharmacy, achieved na- 
tional honor recently in his election as Presi- 
dent of the American Society of Hospital 
Pharmacists. For the 1947-48 term. Dr. Pur- 
dum was President of the Maryland Associa- 
tion of Hospital Pharmacists, and prior to 
that was the President of the Baltimore 
Branch of the American Pharmaceutical 

In addition to his duties at The Johns 
Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Purdum is Professor 
of Hospital Pharmacy at the University of 
Maryland, School of Pharmacy. He is co- 
inventor of the Purdum-Gregorek Solutor, a 
device for the introduction of sterile fluids 
into sterile rubber-capped bottles. 


The Alumni Association of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland takes this oppor- 
tunity to extend the best of all good 
wishes to William F. Swift, Jr. of White 
Hall, Maryland. Bill received a tough 
break and is now convalescing in a West 
Virginia hospital. Bill attended Mary- 
land as a student in Agriculture in 1944 
and 1945. He then saw eleven months 
guard duty in Germany with the Army, 
completed work at a radio school and 
was up for Staff Sergeant when he was 
taken with an almost fatal illness and re- 
turned to the states. Bill's mother wrote 
to thank the Alumni for "MARYLAND" 
magazine, saying, "We saw our son 
Sunday and he said you had sent him 
your magazine. He enjoys the paper so 
much. He liked it so much at Maryland 
and was planning on coming back when 
he finished his army service. He en- 
joyed playing baseball there so much 
and liked everything about the campus." 

We of the Alumni Association are 
proud of Bill and the many like him. 
We send a hearty God speed and all 
wishes for a hasty recovery and a re- 
turn to the University of Maryland. His 
address for those who would like to drop 
him a line is Wm. F. Swift, Jr., Baker 
V.A.F. Hospital, Ward li;3A, Martins- 
burg, West Virginia.

OmicTon Delta Kappa, national hon- 
orary fraternity, tapped four new mem- 
bers from the University of Maryland. 

They are: Dr. Allan G. Gruchy, pro- 
fessor of economics; Harry Bonk, 
graduate student in Physical Education; 
William J. McDonald, junior in Home 
Economics; and Charles A. Lewis, 
senior in .\jrriculture. 

Dr. Gruchy, who was made an hon- 
orary member, is faculty advisor for 
Mortar Board and has been active in 
student aflfairs for a number of years. 

Bonk, star fullback on the Maryland 
football team, was selected for his out- 
standing participation in athletics. He 
is an honor graduate of the College of 

McDonald, former editor of the Dia- 
mondback and associate editor of the 
"M" Book, was chosen for his leader- 
ship in the field of publications. He is 
president of Pi Delta Epsilon honorary 
journalism fraternity. He is also on 
Official Publications and 'MARYLAND' 
magazine staff. 

Lewis, a member of the National Col- 
legiate Players, was selected for his 
contributions in dramatic arts. He is 
president of the University Theater. 

Each year Omicron Delta Kappa 
honors those junior and senior men who 
have been most prominent in campus, 
scholastic and social activities. Mem- 
bership in ODK is one of the highest 
honors that can be conferred upon a 
college man. 




The 1948 Terrapin has achieved high- 
est honors in the National Scholastic 
Press Association annual sui-vey of 
collegiate year books. 

This announcement of the AU- 
American award was made by Jack 
Clark, last year's editor of the Terrapin. 
Clark reported that the complete pic- 
torial coverage and layout of the book 
received an exceptional rating from the 

The format planned by Frank Master- 
son, now '49 editor, was commended. 
Special recognition was given to the 
quality of the photography and to the 
sport section. 

The last time the Terrapin attained 
the All-American rating was in 1941. 
This is the sixth time that the yearbook 
received the top rating.

ical Science comparably with the Physi- 
cian so that his knowledge may be 
scientifically interpreted and intelli- 
gently related at all times. He further 
continues by saying, "while the traits 
of leadership may be inborn qualities, 
still the individual must be subjected 
to an environment wherein these traits 
may be fostered into desirable patterns 
of behavior." 

Child Care Program 

Student Nurses at the University 
Hospital are receiving an entirely dif- 
ferent phase of caring for children than 
they received during the war years. 

At one time it was thought that nurs- 
ing children was just what the name 
implied, feeding, looking after their 
hygienic needs, soothing their fears and 
tears. With the impact of child devel- 
opment and parent education the pro- 
fessional nurse must do more than that. 
She must play the role of the teacher 
and the psychologist, the nutritionist, 
the artist, and the mother. Outside of 
his basic needs the child has more than 
twelve hours out of 24 wherein he must 
be taught principles of childhood, the 
art of entertaining himself, graceful art 
of feeding himself, art of group asso- 
ciation, unselfishness, respect for other 
childi-en and how to care for himself. 

During the past six months several 
nurse specialists have been assisting 
Professor Bradley. Pediatrist of the 
School of Medicine, in how to apply the 
above teaching with the psychological 
approach. During the 1948 summer 
school Gladys Sellew. R.N.. Ph.D., Pro- 

fessor of Sociology, Rosary Collegi 
River Forest, 111., a.ssisted by Frances 
T. Reed, B S., R.N.. formerly from Yale 
University, now with the University of 
Maryland, introduced the program 
wherein play materials and regular 
class periods were conducted for the 
kiddies. Assisting Miss Reed in the 
teaching program is Mrs. Mildred 
Ridges, B.S., R.N., a former kinder- 
garten and elementary teacher in the 
schools of North Carolina. 

Under the guidance of Dr. Sellew, 
who is one of the foremost child special- 
ists in the United States and author of 
many textbooks on the care of children, 
it is hoped that the program will pro- 
gress to be one of the very foremost in 
this country. The Pediatric Department 
gladly accepts funds from any inter- 
ested alumnus or friend of the Univer- 
sity in order that these children may be 
kept happy.

30- Year RejjiiKir U. S. Army Veteran Nov Head 
Of Fine Arts Department 

My Jeanne (Sonant 

mi'W THINK that every student who 
J^ friaduates from collej^e should 
have some kiiowledgre of art," stated 
Colonel James Pierce Wharton, head of 
the fine arts department. The 'Colonel' 
is not just an honorary title, but one 
gained by :?0 years sen'ice in the United 
States Regular Army. 

Colonel Wharton has been painting 
since early childhood when he used to 
draw soldiers and trains for his father's 
business associates in his home town in 
South Carolina. 

When he was just a young boy, he 
won first prize in a Washington Post 
painting contest. This was his first hand 
at painting for money. At the age of 12, 
while studying at the University of Vir- 
ginia art school, he received a scholar- 
ship to the New York Art League. He 
received his literary education at both 
Warford College in Spartensburg, South 
Carolina, and at Duke University, wheie 
he received his Bachelor of Arts degree 
in engineering. He was going to enter 
Yale but upon the outbreak of World 
War I, he enlisted in the army and re- 
ceived a commission in the tank corps. 

In France 

While in France during the war, he 
attended art school where he did his 
first oil painting, a portrait of a French- 

Upon learning of his talents, the army 
sent the colonel to art school for a year 
after which he illustrated the ROTC 
maimals and many of the army bulletins. 

Colonel Wharton has studied under 
such artists as George E. Brown and 
Wehman Adams, one of the foremost 
portrait painters. 

He is introducing in his art classes 
something which has never been used in 
America. It is bituman paint, and he 
got it as a secret from an Italian painter 
who died in the Philippines. This paint 
can last for days without drying out as 
regular paint does, but once the paint- 
ing is finished it is set permanently. 

Enjoys Job 

"I'd rather paint than do anything 
else and I get a great sensation in 
teaching students who want to be 
helped," said the jovial colonel. "It is a 
great thing for the state to have an 
outstanding art department here, and I 
think this department has more future 
possibilities than any other depart- 
ment," he continued. . 

Before ever being connected with the 
University, Colonel Wharton was desig- 
nated as the artist to paint the 6 by 10 
foot mural for the new University 

After thirty years service Colonel 
Wharton retired with the rating of 

Modestly he says, "I was never out- 
standing in my military pursuits. How- 

ever, I was outstanding as an artist, and 
was used in this capacity for making 
posters and illustrating Army Manuals. 
My expert pistol marksmanship was 
due, I feel, to the ability to hold a steady 
paint brush at arm's length for an un- 
limited time." 

Colonel Wharton was one of that 
group of Army men who visualized the 
far-reaching potentialities of the tank, 
from a slow and sluggish mass of steel 
to a speedy, streamlined machine of 
destruction. Chief of the Public rela- 
tions branch in the Third Sei-vice com- 
mand, he has had an energetic career 
which includes service under three gen- 
erals who waged successful war against 
the enemy. 

Tank Officer 

In World War I, Colonel Wharton 
went to England, later to France, with 
the .304th Tank battalion, the second 
such unit to go overseas. His unit served 
under General Patton, then a major. He 
was in France about one year. 

At Ft. Meade, Colonel Wharton began 
experimenting with tanks, firmly con- 
vinced that the machine could be de- 
veloped into a formidable weapon. He 
worked with Christie, inventor of the 
tank that was utilized with great suc- 
cess in World War II. 

Seven years at Meade were termi- 
nated when General MacArthur, then 
commanding general of the Third Serv- 
ice command, requested his sei^vices to 
develop a recruiting program directed 
at the expansion of the army. Colonel 
Wharton was in Baltimore from 1926 
to 1933. In the latter year he was as- 
signed to Fort Benning, Ga., where he 
remained five years, going to the Philip- 
pines in 1938. 

In November, 1941, less than a month 
before Pearl Harbor, he left the Philip- 
pines and a few months later arrived in

ican artists, an exhibit of greeting card 
art, "The Artist in Social Communica-

Not only were all the designs in this 
exhibit submitted by invitation, but they 
were judged individually by members o: 

the Advisory Committee of the Arts 
Bureau. The purpose of this exhibit 
was two-fohi: To stimuhite the interest 
of well-trained youiijr artists in jjreetiiijr 
card desifrns, and to show artists and 
students of art that this field offers a 
real creative opportunity. 


After 29 successful months in jiuiding- 
the sports program of American troops 
in Berlin, Germany, as athletic officer 
of Berlin Military Post, Major E. O. 
Huff left Berlin on November 10 to re- 
turn to the United States. He has been 
assigned to the ROTC Section at the 
University of Maryland. 

Major Huff took over the direction of 
athletics for American military person- 
nel in Berlin on June 1, 1S)4(). With little 
in the way of an active projrram, and 
with German athletic installations dam- 
aged or in a bad state of repair because 
of the war, the major had to start from 

Realizing the necessity for a vai'iety 
of sports in which the several thousand 
troops in Berlin could take part, Major 
Huff quickly got a broad program under 

One of the major accomplishments 
was the intei'-allied track and field meet 
staged in Berlin's famed Olympic Sta- 
dium. For his "meritorious service" in 
the organization and conduct of the 
meet. Major Huff was awarded the 
Army Commendation Ribbon. 

Baseball leagues w'ere organized on 
company and battalion level, and tennis, 
golf, swimming, and other spoi'ts were 
provided under the major's direction. 
German facilities had been requisitioned 
by the occupying American foi'ces, but 
they had to be rebuilt or reconditioned 
to be of any use. 

In the two and one-half years since 
he was assigned to the post, Major Huff 
developed baseball and softball dia- 
monds and football fields in four areas 
of the American Sector. One large 
basketball court was provided and sev- 
eral smaller courts so that every unit 
in Berlin could be represented in basket- 
ball. As a result, all Berlin soldiers 
were able to participate in athletics as 
the various sports seasons arrived. 

Berlin teams, notably the Berlin foot- 
ball team, have fared well in competi- 
tion with other organizations in the 
European Command during the last two 
years. The Berlin Bears, who represent 
Berlin on the gridiron, won the EC 
championship in 1946 and finished as 
runner-up in 1947. This year they tied 
for their conference championship. 

Major Huff, a graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Georgia in 1928, played on 
varsity teams while in college and later 
coached successfully at Ponce de Leon 
High School in Coral Gables, Fla., and 
at the University of Miami where he 
was head football coach. 

Called to active duty with the Army 

j in August, 1940, he served during the 

I war at Fort Benning, Ga., Fort Meade, 

■ Md., and Fort Riley, Kan. He came 

overseas in November, 1945, and to 

Berlin the same month.

The popular conception of the draw- 
ing power of a pood athletic team may 
have been blasted at Southern Illinois 
University as a result of the poll 
conducted by two graduate sociolojjy 
students. So was the "country club" 
reputation of college life. 

Out of 200 first year students queried, 
only 1 percent said they came to South- 
ern because of the University's well 
known basketball team. Another 1 per- 
cent said they came to join a fraternity 
or sorority. 

By far the largest group — 80 percent 
— said they chose Southern because it 
is "close to home," and 62 percent have 
as one of their major reasons the fact 
that Southern is "not too expensive." 

The students questioned were asked 
to check the three most important rea- 
sons or factors influencing their de- 
cisions to go to college. Their answers, 
in percentages, follow: Preparation for 
vocation other than teaching, 57 per- 
cent; parents wanted you to go to 
college, 39 percent; to earn more money, 
.■{6 percent; for the pursuit of knowledge

The University of Maryland Student 
Band under Professor Frank Sykora 
won second prize in the annual Hagers- 
town Mummer's Parade. 

Forty bands, including units from 
Cumberland, Hagerstown, Frederick, 
and Baltimore, participated in the two- 
hour parade sponsored by the Alsatia 
Club of Hagerstown. Virginia was rep- 
resented by hands from Harrisonburg 
and Winchester, with West Virginia 
sending its Martinsburg band. The pro- 
fessional band from Waynesboro, Pa., 
won first prize. 

Bud Waveham, president of the band, 
is a resident of Hagerstown. Other 
members from the Hagerstown area 
are: Jim Abbott, Charlie Huett, Tommy

Dr. H. C. Baylis. pictured above, heads 
Maryland's new department of Philosophy. 


A new Department of Philosophy, 
headed by Dr. Charles A. Baylis of 
Portland, Oregon, will be established in 
the College of Arts and Sciences of the 
University of Maryland in February, 
Dr. H. C. Byrd, President, has an- 

Dr. Baylis' appointment becomes 
effective January 1, when he will come 
to College Park to set up the depart- 

Dr. Baylis enjoys an international 
reputation in philosophy, numerous 
books, articles and reviews written by 
him having been widely published in the 
United States as well as in Europe. 

He is a member of the American 
Philosophical Association (Eastern Di- 
vision), Association for Symbolic Logic, 
A.A.A.S., and Phi Beta Kappa. 

From 1927 to 1948 Dr. Baylis taught 
at Brown University and, from 1924 to 
1928, he taught in summer classes at 

the University of Washington, Stan- 
ford, and Harvard. 

Dr. Baylis received his A.B. degree, 
magna cum laude, from the University 
of Washington in 1923 and his A.M. 
degree from the same school in 1924. 
He was awarded a Ph.D. degree at Har- 
vard University in 1926. As a Sheldon 
Travelling Fellow he studied in Europe 
at Cambridge as well as in Paris and 

Dr. Baylis was born in Portland, Ore- 
gon on April 2, 1902. He is married and 
the father of two boys. 

Referring to Dr. Baylis' appointment, 
"The Diamondback," Maryland student 
newspaper, commented: "One of the 
largest gaps in the University's cur- 
riculum will be filled with the inagura- 
tion of a new department of Philosophy 
under Dr. Charles A. Baylis, who took 
his Ph.D. at Har\'ard in 1926. 

"At a time when emphasis on the ma- 
terial seems to be threatening our civili- 
zation, it is well for any man or uni- 
versity to revert to a search for funda- 
mental truths. Charles A. Lindbergh 
put it like this: 

" 'If we do not control our science by 
a higher moral force, it will destroy us 
with its materialistic values, its rocket 
aircraft, and its atom bombs.' 

"Scientists have recognized their in- 
ability to control the monster they have 
released. Diplomats, schooled in the 
selfish interests of their own pai^icular 
nations, have proven their inability to 
find a solution as evidenced at every 
United Nations conference. Man's 
understanding of man, if it is to come, 
must spring from a new and enlightened 

"Philosophy, of course, is not a cure- 
all for world problems. Dr. Baylis will 
not be able to stop 'man's inhumanity to 
man,' by expounding on the doctrines of 
Spinoza, or Plato, or Aristotle, but any 
emphasis on the humanities, and phi- 
losophy in particular indicates a whole- 
some turn away from an era of dog-eat- 
dog and dollars and cents." 



"Career Opportunities in Marketing" 
was the topic of a speech by Dr. Wilforii 
White at the first open meeting of thi 
Marketing Club of the University o:

representative of the American Viscose 

The two speakers were the first in a 
series to be presented by the newly- 
formed Marketing Club. 

The study of job opportunities and 
problems in the field of Marketing is the 
purpose of the club, which was formed

You Take Out lu Proportion To What You Put In 

THIS discussion of land usi- and 
history recalls the story of the 
preacher who was visitine a colleague 
in a very poor village. The visitor, who 
was to give the sermon on Sunday 
morning:, was introduced by the resident 
pastor; he was told that his honorarium 
would be the regular Sunday offering. 
Whereupon the guest speaker himself 
put a half dollar in the collection plate, 
and then gave his sermon. After the 
services he was tendered the collection 
plate, in which the only money was the 
half dollar that he had contributed. As 
his small son saw this, he remarked, 
"Dad, if you'd only put more into it, 
you'd have got more out of it." Un- 
fortunately many peoples have con- 
sistently put less into their renewable 
natural resources than they have taken 
out. In many parts of the Mediterra- 
nean Basin and in the New World there 
has been an indiscriminate destruction 
of forests, topsoil and water resources, 
specific instances of which we shall view 
in historical perspective in the para- 
graphs that follow. 

Empire's Backbone 

The Roman Empire evolved around 
the body of water which, to the people 
of what is now peninsular Italy, was 
in a very real sense Mare Mostntm. The 
farmers of Latium were the backbone 
of the empire until grain from con- 
quered areas became so cheap that the 
domestic farmers suffered a depression, 
moved into towns and became artisans 
or members of the proletariat who were 
put on a dole of bread and circuses. One 
of the industries that absorbed some of 
this influx of rural migrants was ship 
building, for which the most important 
raw material was lumber. 

In less than a century vast forested 
tracts in peninsular Italy were waste 
lands, and the Dalmatian Coast was a 
desert of rock. Areas mentioned by 
Pliny as having been densely forested 
soon were laid bare, with the result that 
the immediate run-off of winter rains 
greatly increased. Streams that once 
flowed the year round became, in the 
summer season of drought, a series of 
-•stagnant pools — ideal breeding places 
for the malaria mosquito. 

Ruined by Malaria 

Some of the most fertile and most 
prosperous countrysides were swept by 
the scourge of malaria and became de- 
populated deserts; goats browsed medi- 
tatively on the brush that grew up 
where once the land had yielded abun- 
ciant crops. Indeed, many of the changes 

jin population density which have 
characterized Europe for centuries are 
traceable to the encroachment of the 
malaria mosquito on areas formerly 

'free from them. 

The influence of man in making his 
own environment in many instances

progressively uncongenial to Homo 
sapiens is well brought out in the little- 
known work of Dr. Charles Hackett, 
entitled Malaria in Europe. 

The western marches of the Roman 
Empire were overrun first by the Visi- 
goths from the north and then by the 
Moors from the south. The latter stayed 
in the Iberian Peninsula for some eight 
hundred years, proved themselves capa- 
ble administrators, became famed

University of Maryland 

throughout Europe as hydraulic engi- 
neers, and enriched the country by the 
introduction of such valuable plants as 
sugar cane, rice and cotton. 

The expulsion of the Visigoths by the 
Spaniards was little short of cata- 
strophic for the country. Intricate irri- 
gation works were allowed to fall into 
disuse and intensively cultivated areas 
were parcelled out in immense estates 
to noble families and to army officers of 
high rank. Vast tracts of cultivated 
land reverted to grazing, indeed became 
overgrazed in a relatively short time. 

Royal Favor 

The sheep ranchers of Spain, who en- 
joyed the royal favor, banded together 
in an organization called the Mesta and 
became extremely powerful in putting 
a ceiling on the possibilities of seden- 
tary agriculture. Their trans-humant 
sheep, moving long distances in their 
seasonal search for pastures, were by 
royal decree allowed to graze at will 
along the route and the unorganized 
peasants on their unfenced fields were 


as helpless against these flocks as 
against a swarm of locusts. 

The power of the Mesta over large 
sectors of the national economy eventu- 
ally was broken, but wind and water 
erosion had taken the cream of the top- 
soil off hundreds of thousands of acres 
of the best farm land in Spain. 

To New World 

The Spaniards, victorious over the 
Moors in the Old World, looked ai'ound 
for new worlds to conquer, and found 
them in this hemisphere, the greater 
part of which they overran in a few 
years. The Conquistadores first had to 
garrison the West Indian islands, which 
they used as bridgeheads in the con- 
quest of the wonder empires of the 
Incas and the Aztecs. On these islands 
representative types of tropical soils 
are found: (a) alluvial soils, (b) those 
composed of recent volcanic ash, (c) 
fertile residual soils particularly those 
resulting from the disintegration of 
calcareous deposits, and (d) thick resid- 
ual soils formed from the weathering 
i)i situ of volcanic intrusive rocks. 

The native Indians found by the 
Spaniards in the lands of tropical 
America practiced shifting agriculture. 
Small plots, called milpas oi- conucos, 
were cleared off with primitive tools 
and the brush and dead trees were 
burned at the end of the dry season. 
The soil is enriched temporarily with 
the oxides of potassium, calcium, phos- 
phorus, and other minerals in the ashes 
left by the burnings; but organic matter 
is destroyed and the formation of 
humus is impossible. In the long run 
the soils become deficient in nitrogen. 
Intensive leaching by tropical rains 
makes the yields of corn and casable 
negligible after three or four years of 
cropping. Then new plots must be 
cleared and burned at the end of the 
dry season; and thus the cycle con- 

Indians Captured 

Many Indians who had practiced this 
shifting agriculture were captured by 
the Spaniards and made to work on 
their cattle ranches or sugar planta- 
tions; but many escaped to the higher, 
steeper mountain areas where they con- 
tinued to practice their shifting agricul- 
ture. Their descendants engage in the 
same activities to this day. 

With the introduction of coffee culti- 
vation, ever greater areas of mountain 
slopes were cleared and cultivated and 
thus exposed to the torrential rains of 
the tropics. Rivers ran red with their 
priceless cargo of topsoil and at their 
mouths form huge blotches which ex- 
tend for miles out into the indigo sea. 
Priceless soil particles in suspension 
and precious salts in solution are pre- 
cipitated out on the sea floor to be for- 
ever lost to society. 

The residual soil is in many cases 

fifty or sixty feet thick and hence may 
appear to be self-renewing for genera- 
tions before bed rock is reached. Many 
farmers could not bo worried over the 
loss of a few feet a decade. But soil 
erosion can be a link in a chain reaction; 
re.sei-voirs fill up with silt with astound- 
ing rapidity. 

Hydraulic engineers in Puerto Rico 
soon realized that the exceedingly short 
life of many potential reservoirs made 
the building of the dams prohibitive. 
Dam sites might be physically ideal, 
but the streams carried so much debris 
in suspension that the silting up process 
would be faster than any feasible rate 
of amortization of construction costs. 

Contour Plowing 

Hence, a determined campaign was 
inaugurated for contour plowing or 
terracing on slopes under cultivation 
in sugar cane, tobacco and food crops, 
and against further deforestation and 
clean cultivation on the coffee farms. 
Soil conservation practices are impera- 
tive if hydroelectric power is to be 
available both for industrial and do- 
mestic uses. 

The highly developed societies of the 
Aztecs and the Incas collapsed under 
the impact of the guns and cavalry of 
the gold-seeking Conquistadores, who 
by tradition had but slight interest in 
agriculture. Staircase civilizations of 
the Andes, to use the apt and pictur- 
esque e.xpression of the great scholar 
and botanist, 0. F. Cook, which had 
employed terracing and water consei"v- 
ing practices for centuries, crumbled 
before the invaders. Irrigation systems 
broke down, steep mountain slopes were 
ruthlessly deforested, and fertilizer was 
neglected, as the conquered and de- 
moralized Indian population was over- 
worked in the mines or found refuge 
in the more remote mountain fastnesses. 


Regions which once supported dense 
populations soon became veritable waste 
lands, as the arts and crafts, developed 
over centuries by the indigenous popu- 
lations, were lost in one generation. The 
ruins of magnificent temples and splen- 
did public buildings, the retaining walls 
of the abandoned terraces and the 
crumbling fortresses, all stand as mute 
witnesses to the vanished Aztecan and 
Incan empires, which had been firmly 
based on the painstaking conservation 
of water resources and the careful hus- 
banding of the soil. The plight of the 
present agricultural population in Latin 
America has been realistically painted 
by Dr. William Vogt in the June, 1948, 
issue of Harper's Magazine in a paper 
entitled "A Continent Slides to Ruin." 

Man is conditioned by his cultural as 
well as by his physical environment. A 
rising standard of living is usually 
paralleled by a declining birth rate. A 
low or declining standard of living gives 
little scope for a feeling of responsi- 
bility toward one's heirs, and a high 

birth rate is assured. Misery loves com- 
pany. Poor people do not seem to be 
easily scared by Malthusian fundamen- 
talism. Birth control by decree will cer- 
tainly be less effective in adjusting man 
to his resources than will be the un- 
freezing of the cultural environment in 
the direction of raising the standard 
of living. 

The larger part of North America 
was colonized by settlers from north- 
western Europe who were fleeing the 
low productivity of the feudal estate as 
well as religious and political persecu- 
tion. They naturally engaged in agri- 
culture, but were able to introduce 
changes in techniques because of the 
abundance of land. In Europe they had 
practiced the old three-field system — 
allowing one field each year to lie fal- 
low, to rest, because they assumed that 
it was just tired. But in the New World 
there was no reason to allow a field to 
rest in order to cultivate it again later 
on. Land was merely cleared and farmed 
till it was exhausted, and then land 
farther inland was cleared and farmed. 
This was indeed a very wasteful proc- 
ess, but countless square miles of land 
seemed available — this was the land of 
unlimited possibilities. 

Waste In New England 

When the Middle West was opened up 
in the 19th century, thousands of New 
Englanders, heir to the wasteful farm- 
ing practices of their ancestors, moved 
away from stony eroded farms, which 
are now, in many instances, being oper- 
ated at a profit by French Canadians. 
They moved to the rich rolling lands of 
the Ohio Basin, the fertile prairies far- 
ther west, to the Great Plains, and on 
into the Rocky Mountain valleys and 
the regions of the Pacific Coast. 

They became the richest farmers in 
the world, for which they gave too much 
credit to their innate abilities and too 
little to the rich storehouse of virgin 
soil into which they had irrupted. The 
descendants of these pioneers are today 
realizing that humus-rich soils can be 
overcropped, that the spring and sum- 
mer downpours common to the Middle 
West can remove much topsoil from 
even very gently sloping fields, that 
soluble plant foods can be leached out 
in a few years, and that wind erosion 
in the plains can be disastrous, as wit- 
ness the great domestic Volkerwan- 
derung so poignantly fictionalized by 
Steinbeck in "The Grapes of Wrath." 

Only The Beginning 

We are only beginning to experience 
in this country the Agricultural Revolu- 
tion which, under the stimulus of the 
discoveries made by Von Liebig in the 
realm of agricultural chemistry, was 
instrumental in revolutionizing farming 
in northwestern Europe during the past 
century, and which in part made pos- 
sible the dense ruro-urban population 
of that continent. 

The editor of a Southern newspaper 


once wrote that the southern states 
were settled in great part by people 
who didn't like to farm; they took to 
farming not so much as a way of life 
but as a way of making money. They 
were interested in cash crops such as 
tobacco and cotton and they imported 
or bred Negro slaves as cheap laborers 
to produce the crops which would pay 
for plantation mansions, fox hunts, and 
educations in Europe. 

In so doing they cleared the forest 
and skimmed the rich topsoil off a swath 
of country extending from the eastern 
seaboard to the black waxy prairies of 
Texas. They saddled that whole area 
with a one-crop economy that has been 
only gradually broken up by the Civil 
War, by attacks of the boll weevil, and 
by the infiltration of investment capital 
from the North, scared of the iridescent 
bubbles seen beyond the national 

In The South 

Leaching and erosion have gone hand 
in hand with the land tenure system in 
abetting the decline in fertility of once 
productive land. Forty eroded acres 
and a balky mule have not been enough 
to pull thousands of families in our 
southern states out of the economic 
slough of despond. In many cases forty 
acres are an absolute minimum for the 
support of one family as an economic 
unit. The children must seek their liv- 
ing elsewhere when grown, while the 
head of the house still has 15 or 20 
productive years before him. 

The rural migrants move to towns or 
the industrial North, where they be- 
come settled by the time their father 
can no longer run the farm. But by 
then they have acquired urban values 
and are not to be lured back to the farm. 
with its hand-to-mouth existence. The 
struggle for sun'ival is so difficult thai 
little attention can be paid either to soil"^PT 
conservation practices or to the con- 
servation of human resources. Yet all 
the forces of society should be focussed 
on the problems of avoiding the creation 
of tobacco roads for, as Ruskin once 
wrote, "There is no wealth but life." 

Presented here have been only a few 
random examples of the influence of 
the cultural equipment available to 
peoples at a given time in history upon 
their activities in making a living from 
the soil, and consequently upon their 
practices vis-a-vis the conservation of 
their most important natural resource. 
As long as there were pioneer belts in 
the world people could migrate to them 
with relative ease, but the lush frontier 
zones are passing as the globe is getting 
more crowded every year. 

Unforeseen Future 

Roman shipbuilders could not foresee 
what deforestation would mean in terms 
of malarial swamps and the devastation 
of once smiling rural landscapes. Span- 
ish sheep men were not prophets re- 
garding the result of over-grazing in 
their countn,-. 

Our southern planters were unwit- 
tingly building their society on a top- 
soil which, as exploitatively used by 
them, could at best last but a few gen- 
erations. The Spaniards built an em- 
pire in the New World which rested on 
the unstable agricultural foundation of 
preat latifitiidia and of small, indiffer- 
ently cultivated tnilpas. 

The people who farmed what became 
the Dust Bowl in the United States 
were unawaie till too late that their 
land-use practices were to spell wide- 
spread ruin. After this brief excursion 
into the past, concrete suR'^estions for 
the future are in order. 

Countries with lands still unsurveycd 
should institute national cadastral sur- 
veys, with especial emphasis on a survey 
of the soils and their classification ac- 
cording: to what they could produce. 
Recommendations could be made as to 
the steps to be taken to prevent more 
serious erosion and to reclaim fjullied 
and badly washed slopes. Seeds of good 
soil-holding plants and vines (Guinea 
grass and tropical kudzu, for example) 
could be obtained and planted, and 
farmers instructed in the building of 
terraces, drainage ways and small 

Large Areas 

Most Latin American countries have 
enormous tracts of public lands (terr- 
eiios baldios) and should have little diffi- 
culty in setting aside a large acreage of 
forest land for national forest and na- 
tional parks. The present government 
forest services could be reorganized and 
strengthened so as to administer prop- 
erly the public forests, to advise private 
operators on good forest management 
methods — particularly in achieving sus- 
tained yields, to help educate people on 
the need to prevent forest fires, and to 
conduct a research program, both fun- 
damental and applied. 

The support of teachers and pupils 
should be enlisted to help technicians in 
their efforts to hold the soil, to build 
up its fertility, to improve agricultural 
practices on hilly lands, and to help the 
various countries produce more of their 
own food — especially the protective 
foods such as eggs, meats and dairy 

"Dhe Mess We's In" 

Mixed farming and animal husbandry 
would mean the return of animal fer- 
tilizer to the soil, the improved diet 
would mean a marked increase in the 
productive capacity of the people, and 
their purchasing power would be aug- 
mented and prosperity be achieved. 

A colored preacher once gave a long 
and impassioned sermon on "dhe status 
quo." After the meeting one of the 
audience came up and asked his pastor 
for more details on this person, "Status 
Quo." The minister withered him with 
a glance and boomed, "I done thought 
I'd made it clear dat de status quo ain't 
no person. De status quo is de mess 
we's in." The conservation mess in 
which the world finds itself is no re- 
specter of nations. Drastic action is 
necessary on all fronts, because ever 
growing numbers of people in many 
sectors of the world simply can no 

longer live (this is meant literally), 
under the status quo.

Agriculture of Roanoke, Virginia con- 
tains much of interest to students of his

"The recent Homecoming issue (of

a publication of which any university 
might well be exceedingly proud. The 
make up is excellent and the fine editing 
gives a nice balance of news, personal 
items and humor which make it a wel-

Due to an intermission in my scholas- 
tic career caused by World War I, I 
graduated a year after my original 
class ('19), so I attended the last year 
of old M.A.C., attended Maryland State 
College of Agriculture for two years 
and graduated with the first class from 
the University of Maryland. Even in 
the early days, Maryland had a share 
of foreign students. When Prof. Brough- 
ton called the roll in Chemistry I, it 
started 'Aitcheson, Amigo, Axt' — 
Amigo was a Cuban. Chungen Chen, a 
Chinese, graduated in our class, and a 
young Japanese, Yoshikiwa, was a stu- 
dent attending classes my Senior year."

A Tribute To Joseph Hill White, M. D. '83 

friend of (Jeneral William Craw- 
ford Ciorfjas, famous medical authority, 
later became my friend, and, on one 
occasion, my patient. I have known him 
only in his old ajje, lonK after his retire- 
ment from active service. I had made 
his acquaintance a few years before, 
and admired him prcatly, but it was 
when he became my patient at the age 
of 87 that our acquaintance ripened into 
a deeper friendship. When he was con- 
valescing after a critical illness, I felt 
it an honor and a privilege to visit him 
after the rest of the day's work was 
over, and spend hours, literally spell- 
bound, by the extraordinary power of 
his mind. 

Extraordinary Mentality 

Almost totally blind from cataracts, 
which he still expects to have removed, 
his mentality retains a most amazing 
vigor. It reminds me of the extraordi- 
nary mentality of three other old men, 
two of whom I saw as a young man — 
Dr. S. Weir Mitchell and Dr. W. W. 
Keen — and one of whom I have read 
about in Katherine Drinker Bullitt's "A 
Yankee From Olympus" — Mr. Justice 
Oliver Wendell Holmes. 

Both Dr. White and his wife, the 
former Miss Emily Humber, whom I 
never had the privilege of meeting, as 
she died before I came to know Dr. 
White, were of distinguished ancestry. 
Dr. White's first American ancestor was 
a north of Ireland baronet who came to 
this country to seek his fortune. He 
made it here, and became, with John 
Harvard and others, a co-founder of 
Harvard College. Dr. and Mrs. White 
were related to many famous people, 
including three Presidents of the United 
States — John Adams. John Quincy 
Adams, and Andrew Jackson. 

Work At 14 

Dr. White's family had been people of 
means for many generations, but his 
father lived in Milledgeville, Ga., and 
everything he owned was destroyed by 
Sherman's forces in their march to the 
sea. So, young Joseph White had to go 
to work at the age of 14 and get his 
education the hard way. His dauntless 
spirit made its way in the world, and, 
though he had to forego an academic 
collegiate education, he entered the Col- 
lege of Physicians and Surgeons in Bal- 
timore, graduating in 188.'?. He was a 
medical schoolmate of Jesse Lacear of 
the Walter Reed Board. In 1884 Dr. 
White entered the United States Marine 
Hospital Service, now the United States 
Public Health Service. 

It seems strange that Dr. White's 
extraordinary contributions to medicine 
are not more widely known. Most of 
them are listed in "Who's Who in Amer- 
ica for 1944-45." under the heading 
"White, Dr. Joseph Hill." Yet few med-

ical men outside of his service know 
about him, and very few laymen except 
those who lived where he worked at the 
time he was there, and his present 
friends in Washington. I believe that 
the exjjlanation of this is to be found 
in the fact that his chief, an arch- 
l)olitician, Surgeon-General Walter Wy- 
man, disliked him and held him down 
as much as he could, for Dr. White is a 


A lifetime of great good deeds in the in- 
terests of his fellowmen. 

most forthright, honest man who has 
hewn out his career with mighty 
strokes, letting the chips fall where 
they may. 

Redoubtable Personality 

Dr. DaCosta would call him "a re- 
doubtable personality" — an efficient ad- 
ministrator and disciplinarian, a loyal 
trustworthy friend, a dangerous enemy 
to those willfully in the wrong, yet a 
man of deep sympathy and understand- 
ing and profound common sense. 

He is one of three older men whose 
friendship I treasure and hold in pecu- 
liar honor, the other two being Pro- 
fessor Rufus M. Jones of Haverford 
College and Dr. Henry A. Christian of 
Boston. I do not think that Dr. White 
would mind my telling that he is the 
only patient I ever had who has per- 
sonally contracted three of the world's 
great epidemic diseases, Asiatic cholera, 
bubonic plague, and yellow fever. I 
have one or two Russian-Americans 
who have had cholera in Russia, but 
none of my patients, other than Dr. 

White, has had either plague or yellow 

In 189.3, Dr. White was United States 
Sanitary Representative to Hamburg. 
Germany, during the famous cholera 
epidemic there, and this was when he 
contracted cholera. 

Teddy's Friend 

When Theodore Roosevelt was Police 
Commissioner of New York City, Dr. 
White was stationed on Ellis Island, and 
the two became boon companions. 

Dr. White was a lifelong student. He 
knew Dr. Carlos Finlay of Havana and, 
before Walter Reed's definitive experi- 
ments, accepted Finlay's dictum that 
yellow fever was carried by the mos- 
quito then known as Stegomyia fasciata, 
now, as Aedes aegypti. Just before Reed 
went to Havana he visited Dr. White in 
his home at Washington and Dr. White 
told him he was going to tr>- yellow 
fever control by mosquito control at his 
earliest opportunity. 

Soon after that, a small epidemic 
broke out in the Soldiers' Home at 
Hampton, Va., and Dr. White was 
ordered there to deal with it. He wiped 
out the epidemic very promptly by de- 
stroying all Aedes mosquitoes in the 
vicinity. I have seen the engraved testi- 
monial gold watch telling of this work, 
which he carries. Had Reed lived to 
make his final report, he would have 
given Dr. White priority for his work. 

In 1900. San Francisco was visited by 
a plague epidemic. A fine young officer 
of the U.S.P.H.S.. Dr. Kinyoun, went 
there and stated the facts. The local 
politicians denied them and were up- 
held by Surgeon-General WjTiian. him- 
self a politician. Dr. Kinyoun resigned 
from the service and Dr. White replaced 
him in San Francisco. Dr. White agreed 
with Dr. Kinyoun, and all the politicians 
in and out of Christendom could not 
suppress him. so he told the world about 
it. cleared the city of plague, but con- 
tracted the disease himself in the 

Roosevelt — Taft 

When Theodore Roosevelt was Presi- 
dent of the United States, he wanted 
Dr. White to succeed Dr. Wyman as 
Surgeon-General of the U.S.P.H.S. Had 
Roosevelt been elected on the Bull Moose 
ticket. Dr. White would have done so, 
but Taft was president when Wyman 
retired, and the rift between Roosevelt 
and Taft was so great that the latter 
refused to appoint Dr. White, though 
Roosevelt requested it. 

During World War I. Dr. White was 
offered a temporary major-generalcy in 
the Army, but declined it. as it would 
require him to forfeit his retirement 
pension from the U.S.P.H.S.. and ac- 
cepted the temporarj- rank of Colonel, 
which carried no such requirement. He 
was in charge of all malaria control in 


the army camps in the United States. 
He told me the followin^r aneedote: 
Comintr to a newly-erected camp, he 
looked around a bit, and then called on 
the ISIajor (Jeneral in command, an un- 
reasonable officer who listened to no one 
if he could help it. Dr. White requested 
that an engineer otiicer antl at least 200 
enlisted engineer troops be placed at his 
disposal, but was met by a curt refusal 
and an evident unwillinjriiess to discuss 
the matter or inquire what he wanted 
them for. So, Dr. White said he was 
leaving and would loturn in two or 
three weeks. 

Sees 'The Old Man" 

The General demanded why. but Dr. 
White was non-committal, and left to 
inspect another camp. Returninjj at the 
appointed time, he was met by the Gen- 
eral's adjutant, who be.esred him to see 
"the Old Man," as he'd called him, at 
once, and added that he thought Dr. 
White could get anything he wanted 
this time. The General was all hot and 
bothered by a severe malaria epidemic 
that had broken out. Dr. White got his 
engineer officer, and the two rode out 
to a small lake, behind which was a 
hill. The lake, of course was full of 
anopheles larvae. Dr. White said he 
wanted that hill cut away within a 
specified time in such a way that it 
would drain the lake into a river some 
distance away. The engineer officer said 
he could do it in that time with 400 
men, but not with 200. Dr. White re- 
quested the 400 men, got them at once, 
and soon the epidemic was over. 

In "Who's Who" 

Dr. White has had too many impor- 
tant distinctions to list them all here. 
They can be found in "Who's Who in 
America for 1944-45." A few need 
special mention, however. He taught in 
the various, but allied fields of Tropical 
Medicine, Hygiene and Public Health 
in the Universities of Alabama and 
Tennessee. In 1909 he was Chairman 
of the Section on Hygiene and Sanitary 
Science of the American Medical Asso- 
ciation; in 1911, President of the Amer- 
ican Society of Tropical Medicine; and 
in 1920, Delegate from the United 
States to the 6th International Amer- 
ican Leprosy Commission, being suc- 
ceeded in that work by Dr. George W^. 
McCoy, also of the U.S.P.H.S. He was 
the first man to predicate the existence 
of yellow fever in the jungles, where 
the aedes aegypti does not live, because 
of stories he heard from Brazilian In- 
dians from the interior, describing cases 
in the jungle. 

His greatest work, however, largely 
unknown to the medical profession in 
general, and still less so to the Amer- 
ican public, was the wiping out of 
yellow fever from the whole country of 
Mexico, from Central America, and 
from certain northern areas of South 
.\merica. This was done under the aus- 
pices of the International Health Board 
of the Rockefeller Foundation, to whom 
he was loaned for a time from the 
U.S.P.H.S. and for whom he worked for 
several years after his retirement from 
the Government service. 

Perhaps the high i)eak of his career 
was reacheil in 1942. He had been re- 
tired for many years. With his two 
daughters who live with him in Wash- 
ington, he went to si)end the winter in 
the equable climate of Guatemala City. 
Having j)reviously rid (Juateniala of 
yellow fever, he was a well-known figure 
there, and an intimate friend of the 
President of the Rei)ublic. The Presi- 
tlent put his jirivate car at Dr. White's 
disposal. Dr. White took his daughters 
to make a courtesy call on him. They 
chatted together. When Dr. White 
started to leave, a military aide brought 
a small box to the President, and Dr. 
White was commanded to stand up. He 
did so, and the President, taking the 
insignia from the box, made him a 
Grand Officer of the Order of the Quet- 
zal, the highest decoration in the power 
of Guatemala to confer. It was the first 
time a foi-eigner had been so honored. 
The quetzal is the bird of Paradise and 
is portrayed on many Guatemalan post- 
age stamps, for in that country it is 
symbolic of everything great and good. 

Not Recommended 

Just one final point in closing. Dr. 
White seems to have discovered, many 
years ago, a cure for migraine. However, 
neither he nor I recommend it. Up to 
the time of the incident, he had suffered 
severely from the malady himself. One 
day while he was in his house, a bolt of 
lightning came down the stove-pipe and 
struck Dr. White somewhere about the 
middle of his body, burning a spiral 
path down one leg and splitting his heel 

In addition, the force of the bolt 
threw him across the room and his head 
struck the wall with such violence as 
to cause severe multiple skull fractui'es. 
His doctor told him he could not live, 
but, with his characteristic courage and 
forthrightness. Dr. W^hite flatly contra- 
dicted his doctor and said he would get 
well, did so, and thereafter had no more 

A practical scientist and administra- 
tor of the first rank, a man with an 
amazingly keen intellect and vigorous 
personality. Dr. White is a brave, cour- 
teous and gallant gentleman, a glory to 
his profession and his service, and a 
man whose friendship I treasure as a 
rare and precious honor. 


At Cumberland where 4500 saw the 
Maryland Freshman Football team spill 
the freshmen of West Virginia by a 
score of 26-12, the public address blared 
"The West Virginia play was stopped 
by Tydings and O'Conor." A rabid 
West Virginia fan remarked, "How the 
devil can you beat that combination." 
Joe Tydings, who plays end for the 
team, is the son of Senator Millard E. 
Tydings. Ed. O'Conor, a tackle, is not 
related to the Junior Senator from 
Maryland. Both Senators are gradu- 
ates of the University.

of medicine several years ago because of 
failing eye sight due to cataract, is now liv-

education. He attended the South Carolina 
Academy in 1886-1888 after which he attend- 
ed Huntersville High School, Huntersville, 
North Carolina in 1891. Later from 1892 to 
1894 he was a student at Dr. Munroe's Medi-

he retired. 

Dr. Potts was married in 1909 to Miss Rosa

The kind of providence that controls the destiny of men 
and continuance of things, has ordained that the University 
of Maryland prosper, through the medium of growth in its 
service to the people of the State and nation. To those who 
have contributed to this growth — and they are many — the 
University expresses its gratitude. To the Governor of the 
State, for his inestimable interest in higher education, the 
University expresses its deep affection and appreciation; to 
the Board of Regents, for its untiring efforts in managing 
the affairs of the University and in formulating its policy, 
the University is indebted; to its Faculty and Staff, the men 
and women who do the actual work, is extended apprecia-

the University and to the State; and to the people the 
University serves, it should be said that the University could 
not have achieved what it has without their help in ob-

The Association of Land Grant Col- 
leges and Universities completed its 
annual meeting in Washington re- 
cently after discussing higher education 
and the possible nation-wide establish- 
ment of community colleges. 

The original committee of eight, in- 
cluding one representative each from 
the fields of arts and sciences, agri- 
culture, home economics and graduate 
work, began the study early last sum- 
mer, enlarging the field to include 
three representatives from each field. 
The decisions of the association will be 
studied in the colleges and universities, 
with an emphasis placed on education 
to live and education to earn a living. 

The New Board 

The Board of Directors of the College 
of Home Economics welcomes four new 
members who were elected on Home- 
coming Day to serve for a period of 
two years. 

Marjorie Cook Howard '43 comes 
from University Pai'k, Maryland where 

she is a busy ht)memaker. She is mar- 
ried to Eugene Howaid '41 and they 
have one daughter, Joan Leigh, who is 
one and a half years old. Marjorie is 
very busy in Delta Delta Delta Sorority 
work as the District President for Vir- 
ginia and North Carolina. 


Jeanne Regus, lower right, a daughter of 
Milton Luther Regus. S319 Brabant Road. 
Baltimore, Maryland, has been awarded a 
S300 scholarship by the Borden Company as 
the student in the College of Home Eco- 
nomics who has the highest average among 
the senior home economics students. 

Jeanne is a graduate of Western High 
School in Baltimore. She entered the Col- 
lege of Home Economics at the University 
in September, 1945, selecting Practical Art 
as her major in preparation for a career in 
merchandising. Jeanne says that with the 
S300 award she hopes to do graduate work 
in her chosen field. 

As a freshman, Jeanne won the Omicron 
Nu medal awarded to the freshman in home 
economics whose scholastic average was the 
highest in the College of Home Economics. 
Also during her freshman year, due to her 
high average as a freshman, she was elected 
to Alpha Lambda Delta, Freshman Honorary 

This year she has been elected to Omicron 
Nu, Home Economics Honor Society, and to 
Phi Kappa Phi. In addition to her academic 
work, Jeanne has been prominent in other 
campus activities. She is a member of Alpha 
Xi Delta, has sung in the Women's Chorus, 
worked on the Diamondback, and served as 
Vice-President of Women's League. 

The Borden Company is active throughout 
the United Slates in promoting good nutri- 
tion among our people. S3, 000 has been given 
to the College of Home Economics by The 
Borden Foundation to be used in ten S300 
scholarships — one to be awarded each year 
to the senior home economics student who 
has taken at least two courses in Foods and 
Nutrition and who has the highest average 
of all eligible students. 

Ruth McRae '27 is AHHintant Prin- 
cipal and the Dean of (Jirls at Ontral 
High School. She lives in Washington, 
I). C. Ruth is Regional Vice President 
of the Dean of Women's Association. 
She received her Master's Degree in 
Education from Maryland in 194:i. 


Mary Farrington Chaney '42 is mar- 
ried to Bob Chaney '40. Mary Charlotte 
is a homemaker and lives in College 
Park. For the past two years she has 
served as President of the Guild of St. 
Andrews Church, College Park, Mary- 
land. She is iirominent in civic afl^airs. 

And last but not least, is Carol Haase 
Wilson who graduated June with 
so many honors. Carol is teaching 
Home Economics in the seventh grade 
at a new junior high school in Balti- 
more. She was married last June 12th 
to William R. Wilson who holds an 
Etigineering Degree from Johns Hop- 
kins and is now attending the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Dental School. 


We extend our thanks to the retiring 
members — Florence McKeniiey ':Ui who 
came from Baltimore for all the meet- 
ings, Margaret "Peg" Aldridge '2(5 who 
did so much toward organizing an 
Alumni Club in Alleghany County, 
Marguerite Willey '38 who had a near 
perfect attendance for all the meetings 
even though she had to travel all the 
way from the lower part of the "shore," 
and Doris Kolb '42 who gave so much 
time as co-editor. 





"She doesn't need an education to get along," boomed Brooke Johns, Chairman, Montgomery County Commissioners. This was at 
The Hecht Company's first anniversary celebration at Silver Spring, the highlight of the event being the awarding of a S300 scholarship to 
Joan Ford (center above). Practical Art senior, 1502 Jefferson St., Michigan Park Hills, Md., for merit in merchandising. 

None the less effective, if less sensationally presented were the two S300 merchandising scholarships awarded to two other seniors 
in the Department of Practical Art, Mary Elizabeth Rockwell (left above), of 1466 Rolling Road, Baltimore, and Jeanne Regus. of 5319 
Bralant Road, Baltimore (right above), at the last meeting of the Retail Merchants' Association of Baltimore. None the less appro- 
priate would have been Mr. John's remarks, if we know anything about feminine pulchritude! 

All three scholarships are awards offered annually to students who display outstanding aptitude for the merchandising of house 
furnishings or wearing apparel. To be eligible, a student must have completed the junior year under the Practical Art curriculum 
and be a resident of Maryland or the District of Columbia. Also, each candidate must be interested in merchandising as a career and 
have outstanding personality ratings and performance records. 

All of the 1948 crop of winners are interested chiefly in the merchandising of wearing apparel — in becoming buyers, consultants, 
or graphic advertisers. Miss Regus and Miss Rockwell, both Baltimore residents, plan to pursue their post-graduation careers in Balti- 
more while Miss Ford, a resident of Prince George's County, expects to continue her work in Silver Spring and Washington, D. C. after 
her graduation from the University of Maryland. 



Roxie Lee Montgomery, of Ijamsville, Md. 
(piclured-above), recently was awarded the 
Allis-Chalmers Scholarship to the College of 
Home Economics, University of Maryland. 

Previously Miss Montgomery, a graduate 
of Frederick High School, had won a County 
Garden medal, and a Maryland State trip to 
Chicago for the National 4-H Congress. 

Daughter of a farmer. Miss Montgomery is 
leader of the Urbana Girls 4-H Club and 
also scribe of the Maryland chapter, 4-H All- 
Stars. She has tilled, during the past six 
years, nine acres of soil. Last summer she 
planted 26 types of vegetables, including 
some for winter storage. She canned 275 
quarts of vegetables for winter use. Her 
garden produce brought S460. 

Four members who served this past 
year remain on the Board. They are 
Hazel Teniiey Tuemniler '29, Nellie 
Smith Davis '2'.\, Greba Hoffstetter '47 
and Charlotte Farnham Hasslinger '34. 
It is hoped that the coming: year will 
show a continuation of our past 

Homecoming Meeting 

Our second annual meeting of the 
Alumnae Organization of the College 
of Home Economics was held in the 
Maryland Room on October 16^ — the 
morning of Homecoming Day. There 
were about 50 alumnae present for the 
breakfast (which was served by the 
Home Economics staff) and the business 
session which followed. 

Chairman Hazel Tenney Tuemmler 
presided and, after the minutes of the 
l)revious meeting were read, gave a 
review of the accomplishments of our 
organization this past year. She an- 
nounced the following: 

1. A permanent date for a spring 
meeting has been set as the last Satur- 
day ill Ajnil (unless this date coincides 
with the si)ring meeting of the Mary- 
land Home Economics Association). The 
meeting will be a dinner and at this 
time an award, based on outstanding 
(lualities such as scholarship and citi- 
zenshi]), will be presented to a student 
in the Home Economics College. 

2. There has been complete reorgani- 
zation of the Home E^conomics Alumnae 

3. Local University of Maryland 
Alumni groups have been established. 

We were all urged to contact any local 
groups which have been formed and 
otherwise to try to help establish them. 

4. Our participation in the magazine 
MARYLAND. Each college has been 
allotted two pages for the interests of 
its members and we were all urged to 
send in interesting infoimation to either 
of the co-editors. One feature of our 
section is a "Job Open" Department. 
Although names of firms or schools 
cannot be jjublished, interested alumnae 
may contact them about openings by 
either writing or phoning the Home 
Economics Office in College Park. 

5. The General Council of the Alumni 
Association has been very active during 
the past year placing particular em- 
phasis on scholarships to be awarded by 
all the colleges. 

After Hazel Tuemmler discussed 
these facts with us, four new members 
were elected to the board of directors 
of the Home Economics Alumnae group. 
These were: Marjorie Cook Howard, 
Ruth McRae, Mary Charlotte Farring- 
ton Chaney, and Carol Haas Wilson. 

The board of directors then adjourned 
to elect officers and co-editors of the 
magazine MARYLAND. Hazel Tenney 
Tuemmler was re-elected chairman, 
Mary Charlotte Chaney was elected 
vice-chairman, and Nellie Smith Davis 
re-elected secretary. Charlotte Hass- 
linger and Marjorie Cook Howard were 
elected co-editors for magazine MARY- 

After the board returned with the 
presentation to the Alumnae group of 
its officei-s, the second annual meeting 
was adjourned and we joined our friends 
for the rest of Homecoming Day fes-

Going to press shortly for the 1949- 
1950 year will be a series of University 
catalogs replacing the large general 
catalog of previous years which com- 
bined all of the College Park schools 
under one cover. 

Instead, the University will publish 
a general information bulletin aug- 
mented by separate catalogs for each 
of the College Park and Baltimore 
schools, i.e. Agriculture, Engineering, 
Business & Public Administration, Arts 
and Sciences, Home Economics, Military 
Science, Physical Education and Recrea- 
tion, Graduate School, Summer School, 
Special and Continuation Studies, Medi- 
cine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Law and 

All volumes will be published under 
the general title "A University of Mary- 
land Publication" while the sub-title 
will identify the college concerned and 
the series will feature a different 
colored cover for each school. 

After all issues have been printed 
they will be assembled and bound under 
one cover as a general overall catalog 
to be used for administrative purposes. 

These catalogs are assembled for pub- 
lication by the office of Director of 
Publications, Harvey L. Miller, upon 
approval by Dean of the faculty, H. F. 
Cotterman, each separate catalog hav- 
ing been edited by the dean of the 
school concerned. 


Colonel Harvey L. Miller, Director of 
Publicity and Publications at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, was guest speaker 
at the Armistice Day luncheon of Thad 
Dulin Post, American Legion, at the 
Burlington Hotel, Washington. 

Miller's subiect was, "Loyalty — Men 
Die for It." 

The Post is named in honor of the late 
Lieutenant Colonel Thad Dulin, highly 
decorated Maryland graduate. '35, who 
gave his life in Europe. The members 
of the post are all World War II men, 
manv of them Maryland alumni.

Dies At 79 Years Of Age 

By Bill Hottel 

Prof. Richardson 

ONE OF THE old guard of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, who may well 
have been termed one of the "pioneers" 
of the present institution, passed away 
on October 25 when Prof. Charles S. 
Richardson died in George Washington 
Hospital in Wash- 
ington on October 
25. He had not been 
in good health for 
a long time and 
had been seriously 
ill for three years. 

Prof. Richardson, 
who was 79, had 
been associated 
with the University 
for 40 years before 
retiring in 1939. He 
came to Maryland 
in 1900 from Snow 
Hill on the Eastern 
Shore where he had 
been principal of 
the high school. He 
was obtained as an English instructor 
but it was not long before he organized 
the Speech Department, which he con- 
tinued to head until his retirement. He 
also helped to develop campus dramatics 
and was chairman of the Athletic Board 
during his entire career at Maryland. 

Headed Athletics 

It was as head of the Athletic Board 
that he was the prime mover in bringing 
Dr. H. C. (Curley) Byrd, a graduate of 
1908 and an all-around sports star, back 
to College Park and starting the foot- 
ball coach on his way to be president 
and "builder" of the now great insti- 
tution. He was successful in the fall of 
1912 in having Byrd named football 
mentor and teacher in English and his- 
tory and he accomplished his goal de- 
spite stern objections of some of the 
other leaders on the campus who said 
Curley, then only 23 years old, was too 
young for the grid job. 

When Prof. Richardson came to 
Maryland there were not many more 
than 100 students in the then Maryland 
Agricultural College, but when he re- 
tired it was well on its way to becoming 
one of the major educational institu- 
tions in the Nation in size and caliber 
and his utmost faith in Curley Byrd had 
been more than justified. 

In fact, it was a happy turn of a 

football game in the fall of 1911 that 

enabled Prof. Richardson to win his 

argument to put Byrd in the athletic 

. saddle. Byrd then was coaching at Gal- 

i laudet College in Washington but Prof. 

j Richardson got him to do double duty 

I and prepare a floundering Maryland 

■ team for what appeared to be a hopeless 

task against a rampaging and unbeaten 

Western Maryland outfit. 

The ".Aggies," as they were termed 
in those days, had lost to Hopkins, St. 
John's and Washington College, and 
were 30 point underdogs, but after a 
hectic struggle in which several West- 
ern Maryland goalward diives were 
halted, M.A.C. triumphed by a G-0 
score and paved the way for the oppor- 
tunity for Curley Byrd to become a 
unique figure in the college realm of 

From 1911 

Two other outstanding actors in that 
game of 1911 also still are conspicuous 
on the campus. They are H. Burton 
(Ship) Shipley, baseball coach and 
physical education instructor and for- 
mer basketball mentor, and Dr. William 
B. (Bill) Kemp, director of the Experi- 
ment Station. Ship, who played quarter- 
back in a formation similar to the pres- 
ent T, scored the winning touchdown 
and fullback Kemp was highly instru- 
mental in placing the ball in scoring- 
position. Another person who played a 
big role at left halfback was Frank 
Hoffecker, father of Tommy, Mary- 
land's able lacrosse goalie, who is a fre- 
quent visitor to Maryland's athletic 

It also might be mentioned that the 
game was the writer's first peek at a 
College Park sports affair. He was lured 
into the long and tiresome street car 
ride by an enthusiastic bid from Curley 
Byrd whom he happened to bump into 
on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington 
a few days before the game. To quote 
Byrd: "If you haven't got anything to 
do Saturday, come out to College Park 
and see us play Western Maryland. 
They are supposed to lick the pants off 
us, but I think we're going to surprise 

Great Upset 

We made the jaunt after Curley care- 
fully explained how to get to College 
Park and on our way up to the field 
on a dirt path stopped in Bill White's 
little basement hideout at College Ave- 
nue and the Boulevard and bought a 
couple bars of chocolate to munch on 
as the Aggies proceeded to register the 
greatest upset in football history in 

It was that day, too, that we first met 
Prof. Richardson whom we learned to 
greatly admire and to gain as one of 
our closest friends. 

Curley, of course, had been one of 
Prof. Richardson's students while he 
w-as getting his engineering degree 
from 1905-1908 and starring in football, 
baseball and track. Among his other 
star pupils and life-long friends were 
Judge William P. Cole, now chairman 
of the Board of Regents, and Senator 
Millard E. Tydings, also a member of 
the Board, both of whom were gradu- 
ated in 1910. Both were among those 
to attend the funeral. 

Prof. Richardson, a man of great per- 
sonality, w'as a master of rhetoric and 
a wonderful speaker and was in con- 


stunt demand to address varied ortfani- 
zations. He spoke in nearly every city, 
town and hamlet in the States and 
doubtless is recalled by more foi-mei- 
students and residents of Maryland than 
any other person ever connected with 
the University except Byrd himself. 

His chief aide in the Speech Depart- 
ment for years was R. M. (liunt) Wat- 
kins, now (College Park's leading real 
estate man and builder, and he brought 
to Maryland Dr. Ray PJhrensberger who 
became his successor. It would be pos- 
sible to write all day about his friends 
and admirers if space permitted. But 
in any analysis, the State, the alumni 
and the college world in general owes 
him a debt of gratitude foi- his winning 
fight to bring Curley Byrd back to his 
alma mater and set the stage for the 
most dramatic story in collegiate his- 

Prof. Richardson is survived by his 
widow, Mary Wharton Richardson, 
whom he married in 1900, and who is 
continuing to reside at their home on 
College Avenue in College Park, and a 
sister, Miss Elizabeth Richardson of 
Snow Hill, retired principal of the high 
school there. 

Pallbearers at Prof. Richardson's fu- 
neral were Dr. Byrd, Dr. T. B. Symons, 
dean of the College of Agriculture and 
head of the Extension Service and one 
of his long-time associates; Stewart 
Shaw, anothei- old-timer who is on the 
retired list; Leslie E. Bopst, State 
chemist; Watkins and Dr. Ehrensberger. 

Buiial was in Snow Hill. 


Ethel Monroe Troy '17, a graduate of 
the Nursing School and a member of 
the University of Maryland Alumni 
Council is still searching for a red 
headed widower with three carrot- 
topped sons. No one seems to know 
what she would do with them if she 
found them but the request sei-ves as 
an opportunity to introduce one of the 
most active members of our Alumni 
Association. Mrs. Troy served as an 
Army nurse in France with the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Unit in World 
War I. In the second war she was over- 
seas from 1943 to 1945 wtih the Amer- 
ican Red Cross in station and evacuation 
hospitals in Tunisia, Italy, France and 
Germany. From 1920 to 1924 she was 
chief nurse of District No. 3 with the 
U. S. Veteran's Administration and 
from that time until 1929 was with the 
Maryland State Department of Health 
as State Advisoi-y Nurse and spent 
much of her time in Montgomery 
County. Since 1937 she has been Dis- 
trict Manager and underwriter for the 
Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance 
Company. She has also found time to 
serve as Vice-President of the Maryland 
Federation of Women's Clubs and as 
President for the Baltimore District. 
She is a past State Commander of the 
Women's Field Army for the control of 
cancer. It has been said "She has a 
wonderful future behind her." Mrs. 
Troy is a resident of Baltimore.

Maryland 17, GeorRC Washington 

PARSON WKEMS pave us Georpe 
Washington's "Father, I cannot 
tell a lie," as Georpe admitted having 
thrown the cherry tree for a total loss. 

So now it behooves Coach Jim Tatum 
and his pipskin cohorts to similarly 'fess 
up that the Terps, in turn, chopped 
down George Washington. 

It was a smashing 47 to holocaust 
and marked Homecoming Day for the 
Colonials. There wasn't much in the 
way of football for the Hatchetmen to 
come home to and to really rub it in 
beauteous Lois Anne Brackett, George 
Washington's Homecoming Queen, 
turned out to be the wife of Harry T. 
Brackett, Aeronautical Engineering stu- 
dent at Maryland. 

The horrendous score imposed upon 
G. W. by the Terps accompanied by fiery 
tempers and occasional extra curricular 
roughage, was amassed like this: — 

The Terps' Josh Idzik took the kick- 
off on his own 15 and raced to the 48. 
Harry Bonk slashed through George 
Washington's line to move the ball 45 
yards in eight plays to score. 

The Terps pushed over three tallies in 
the second quarter. The first came on 
the very first play of the period with 
Hubie Werner exploding into pay dirt 
from the 11 on a handoff from Turyn. 

Idzik took over and tossed a long 
looping aerial from his own 26 to Jim 
Larue on the Colonial 34. Fleet-footed 
Larue shook off three tacklers to score. 


Elmer WingaJe, Maryland end, who re- 
ceived United Press Honorable Mention in 
the All-America selections. Elmer is from 
Baltimore. He is a sophomore. Height 6 ft. 
1 in. Age. 18. Weight 190. 

The fourth Terp TD resulted from 
Turyn's second flip to Wingate in the 
second period at the half, Maryland 25 
to 0. 

Touchdown 5 came in the third quar- 
ter. Vic Turyn tossed deep in the 
Colonials' end zone to Earl Roth. It 
was good for nine yards and climaxed 
an 86-yard drive. 

Jim Tatum took out his regulars in 
the fourth period and the second and 
third stringers romped. 

Colonials' Kline attempted a smash at 
the middle of the Terp line but was 
hurled back into his own end zone. 
There followed the two greatest runs 
of the game. 

George Washington kicked off from 
their own 20-yard line and Johnny 
Baroni went for 63 yards and another 

Stan Lavine provided the next thrill 
with an 88-yard return of a George 
Washington punt doing a slippery job 
of ball toting. His blocking was perfect 
for the first 25 yards but from there he 
was on his own and fully equal to the 

The only scoring threat made by the 
Hatchetmen came in the second quarter 
when they rolled to Maryland's 10-yard 
stripe, but even that resulted in a touch- 
down for the Terrapins. 

The crowd was cheering lustily as 
G. W. was pouring plays through and 
around the Terps' great line. On third 
down Davis stepped back to pitch, but 
Jim LaRue intercepted on his own three 
and raced to G. W.'s 34, then lateraled 
to big Ray Krouse, who ran to the 26 
before being hauled down. In two plays 
the Terps moved to the five and there 
Vic Turyn streaked a strike to Elmer 
Wingate for the touchdown. 

Turyn, Maryland's veteran hurler, 
pitched three of his team's touchdowns 
and played what was probably his best 
game since coming to College Park in 
1945. The slim West Virginian climaxed 
a drive of 48 yards in the early mo- 
ments of the first quarter with a short 
pitch from the 3 yard line to Wingate 
for the score. 

It was a rough ball game in which 
two players had to be carried off the 
field. Francis (Scoop) Evans, a Mary- 
land end, was one of them. 

Maryland 27, Miami 13 

With .sharpshooting, quick-thinking 
Vic Turyn playing another of "Turyn's

Harry is just a great line buster. 

Miami, in the second period, took a 
7-6 lead. But from then on Maryland 
completely dominated play and piled up 
a ground gaining parade of 329 yards 

Much of the honor and glory in the 
victory went to Turyn. He did every- 
thing right and set up most all of the 
Terps' scores with an aerial attack that 
Miami couldn't solve. 

The second period was football of 
another sort, with Maryland tallying 
twice and Miami once. Jim Larue took 
a handoff from Turyn and raced 39 
yards to score. 

Then the Hurricanes converted a Terp 
pass into a touchdown. 

Maryland came back and moved 71 
yards for their second touchdown. Ted 
Betz took a four-yard pass from Turyn 
in the end zone for his first collegiate 
touchdown. Dean kicked the extra poii ■ 
and Maryland led at the halftime, 13-' 

The Terps battered Miami to move 
the second half kick-off 79 yards for 
the Terps' third touchdown. Idzik took 
the kick in his own end zone and raced 
to his own 21 before being hauled down. 
Then the Terps moved all the way to 
Miami's one where Bonk crashed the 
middle for the counter and Dean added 
the extra point. 

It took the Terps only five minute? 
and 11 plays to travel 66 yards for their 
last score. Turyn and Werner collabo- 
rated on laterals, running and forward 
passes. Werner contributed runs of 11 
and 13 yards on this drive, his final dash 
carrying to the 5 from where Bonk 
banged through the middle for the tally. '

The Terps completed oidy one pass 
in 12 tries and that connection, oddly 
enough, was jjood for the College 
Parkers' first touchdown. When Vic 
Turyn's pitchin' failed, Maryland took 
to the road and rolled up ^.IS yards 

In the second period Turyn climaxed 
a 39-yard drive by tossing a nine yard 
pass to Ted Betz in the end zone. 

Earl Roth, the Terp fullback, got off 
a booming 54-yaid punt into the South 
Carolina end zone late in the second 
quarter and on the Gamecock's first 
oflFensive play. Bishop Strickland fum- 
bled and big Ray Krouse, the Terps' 
240-pound tackle, pounced on the ball 
at Carolina's 20. 

Harry Bonk and Hubie Werner, put 
the Terps on the three. Then Werner 
fumbled a wet and slippery handoff 
from Turyn but later picked up the ball 
on a dead run, and scooted to pay dirt. 

A South Carolina bobble in its end 
zone gave Maryland its third score. 
South Carolina, backed up against its 
own goal posts, tried a punt but the 
Gamecocks' halfback fumbled and Elmer 
Wingate plopped on the free ball to 
chalk up another six points. 

With three and a half minutes left 
in the game, Wadiak pulled off a long 
scoring jaunt to give the old grads 
something to cheer about and to keep 
South Carolina from being shut out. 
This run, too, had its way paved by a 
fumble. It was a bad ball to handle and 
both teams fumbled often. 

Tarheels 49, Terps 20 

At Griffith Stadium, Washington, a 
crowd of 34,588, the largest to ever see 
a collegiate football game there, 
watched the Terps derail Choo-Choo 
Charley Justice but still lose to North 
Carolina, 49-20. 

Maryland manufactured five touch- 
downs in the first half but four of them 
went on the Tarheel side of the ledger, 
as North Carolina turned a Maryland 
pass into its first score, converted two 
Old Line fumbles for two more and then 
worked a weak, wobbly Terp punt for 
the other. When the Terps fumbled a 
Tarheel was there to fall on the oval. 
When North Carolina fumbled our boys 
just weren't on deck. 

An alert and smart North Carolina 
learn preserved its undefeated mark. 

John Idzik, halfback, and Harry Bonk, 
fullback, gave the Terps something to 
cheer about in the early moments of the 
game. The first time Maryland got its 
hands on the ball it sent Bonk crashing 
74 yards through the right side of his 
line to put the ball on the Tarheels 10, 
Idzik then broke through tackle to make 
the score after Turyn had placed the 
ball there on a quarterback sneak. Bob 
Dean made the conversion kick good to 
give the Terps a 7-0 lead. Maryland's 
troubles began when Turyn's pass in- 
tended for Elmer WMngate was inter- 
cepted by Maceyko and the fleet Caro- 
lina back ran 59 yards for the tying

In the second quarter, Turyn fumbled 
a hand off and Romano recovered on the 
Terp eight. The Tarheels sent Justice 
and their great fullback, Hosea Rodgers, 
smashing at the Maryland line but the 
Terps' forward wall pushed Carolina 
back to the 19. Justice heaved a strike 
into the waiting arms of Ken Bowell, 
6-foot 2-inch end and the lead was 
Carolina's to stay. 

North Carolina kicked-off and three 
Maryland plays stranded them on the 
21 -yard line. Earl Roth went back to 
punt but the ball slithered off his foot 
and went out of bounds at his own 44. 
On a series of seven plays the Tarheels 
moved down to the 16 where again 
Justice sent an aerial into the end zone 
to Bob Kennedy for the score. 

Maryland fumbled and N. C.'s Ro- 
mano flopped on the ball on the Terp 16. 
Two end runs by Justice put the ball on 
the two and Rodgers broke over for the 
fourth Carolina touchdown.

In the third quarter Rodgers flipped 
a pass from the five-yard line. This play 
was set up by a pass interference 
penalty which took the ball from the 42 
to the eight. Justice took two tries at 
getting around the ends for a score and 
when he was bottled up, Rodgers faked 
a smash at the line and instead tossed 
to Justice for a touchdown.

Maryland broke back into the scoring: 
on the next kick-off when the Terps 
climaxed a sustained drive of 80 yards 
with a touchdown pass from Turyn to 
Joe Kuchta in the end zone. The final 
pass play was good for 15 yards. 

Maryland pulled an on-side kick and 
Ray Krouse pounced on the ball for 
Terp possession at the Carolina 40. On 
the next play Turyn let fly with a pass 
that lit in North Carolina arms and 
made for another touchdown. 

In the waning- moments of the game 
the Terps scored their third touchdown 
— an aerial from Turyn to Pete Augs- 
burger in the end zone. 

The Terps fumbled foui- times and 
lost the ball on all four occasions. And 
these bobbles pioved the difference in a 
winning and losing ball club when you 
consider the fact that Maryland rolled 
up ;549 yaids in total offense against 
only 179 for the Tarheels. 

Vandy 34. Terps 

At Nashville the Vanderbilt Commo- 
dores, alert, powerful and smart, really 
laid it onto Maryland's grid team, 
M-0, before 22,500. 

The Terps just were not very much 
in the ball game. They crossed midfield 
only once, completed no passes of their 
own, committed costly fumbles and 
pitched five passes into the arms of 
Vandy interceptors. 

The chief contributor to the Terps' 
stinging defeat was Zealand Thigpen, 
ironically a Jim Tatum-coached fellow 
from the Jacksonville Navy squad, 
aided by swivel-hipped Bobby Barry. 

The Terps made only 70 yards rush- 
ing and four first downs in all. 

The yardage piled up by the Commo- 
dores, 227 on the ground and 78 in the 
air, for 20 first downs. 

Vanderbilt scored midway in the first 
period, twice in the second and after 
being stopped twice by an interception 
and fumble in the third it added two

touchdowns in the last quarter, one with 
only 28 seconds to play. 

The impressive triumph of the Com- 
modores was revenge for an upset de- 
feat by the Terps last year and it gave 
the hosts a 5-1 lead in the series. 

The Maryland line, magnificent while 
the Terps rolled up six triumphs in their 
first .seven games, and commendable in 
defeat by North Carolina a week previ- 
ously, couldn't get out of its own way 
at Nashville. However, the brilliant 
Freshman Guard, Bob Ward and Center 
Jim Brasher can be cited for excellent 
play in defeat. 

W. Va. 16, Terps 14 

A 22-yard drop-kicked field goal in 
the third period made the difference as 
West Virginia aced out Maryland, 16-14 
at Morgantown before 20,000 fans. 

Fumbles that plagued Maryland all 
season set up one Mountaineer touch- 
down and also the field goal. 

The Old Liners scored early in the 
first period and were ahead all the way 
until the Mountaineers scored a touch- 
down with only 2 minutes and 58 sec- 
onds of the game left. 

The game was played on a slow, slip- 
pery field that had been softened by 

Both Mountaineer tallies were by Jim 
Devonshire, a fast and hard-hitting 
halfback, while tallies for the Old Liners 
were by Jim Larue on a 25-yard pass 
from Joe Tucker in the first period and 
by Hubie Werner on an 82-yard dash to 
start the .second half. Bob Dean con- 
verted both Maryland scores. 

The defeat was the third straight for 
Maryland and left it with a 6-4 record 
for the season. The Mountaineers have 
yet to finish their season, being sched- 
uled against Texas Mines in the New 
Year's Day Sun Bowl game. They carrj- 
an 8-3 record into that tilt. 

The final touchdown against the Old 
Liners was set up late in the last period 
when a lateral from Maryland Quarter- 
back Vic Turyn to Werner was fumbled 
and recovered by West Virginia on the 
Terrapin 25. Seven line-pounding plays, 
carried the ball across. 

Earlier, the Terrapins had made three 
grand goal line stands to turn back 
touchdown threats. 

Ray Krouse and Elmer Wingate 
starred in stopping one West Virginia 
drive that went 62 yards to the Terps' 3 
in the second period, while Chet Gierula 
and Al Phillips did the same in halting 
a drive on the 10 later in the same 
frame. End Francis Evans saved a 
touchdown in the third period just be- 
fore Simmons' successful field goal.

Maryland struck rapidly for both its 
scores. The game hardly had started 
when Johnny Idzik intercepted a pass 
by West Virginia's Jimmy Walthall on 
the Mountaineer 30. Two plays later, 
and with the game only 2 minutes, 36 
seconds old. Tucker passed 25 yards to 
Larue in the end zone. 

Again to start the third frame, the 
Terps scored. On their first play from 
scrimmage, Werner took a lateral from 
Turyn and scampered 82 yards down the 
sidelines behind marvelous blocking 
from Elmer Wingate. 

Following Maryland's second score, a 
Turyn fumble set up the Mountaineer 
field goal. 


Maryland did not place anyone on the

Professor George D. Quigley, Chair- 
man of the Boxing Committee, Southern 
Conference, has announced that the 
Southern Invitational Boxing Tourna- 
ment will take place either at College 
Park or Columbia, S. C. on March 24 
to 26, the location depending upon the 
relative proximity of the various schools 

This tournament is open to all schools 
south of the Mason Dixon line and is 
not confined to Southern Conference in- 
stitutions. Invited were The Citadel, 
South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, 
L. S. U., Miami, Catholic University, 
Georgetown, American University and 

As we go to press The Citadel, South 
Carolina, Maryland, Georgetown and 
American University have accepted. 

This tournament, if all the schools 
that have been invited would accept, 
could easily be built up into the greatest 
tournament in intercollegiate boxing.

Commenting on Bowl Boxing (the 
first bowl bid Maryland ever received 
and the only bowl win scored by a Terp 
team, came to the boxing team), Bob 


Addie, erudite columnist of the Wash- 
ington Times-Herald, comments: 

"A boxing enthusiast wants to know 
why all the what-for over bowl bids . . . 
He says the Maryland boxing team got 
a bowl bid (Sugar bowl) before the 1948 
season started, which was quite a com- 
pliment to the Terp mitt-.slingers . . . 
Incidentally, the two boxing teams in 
the Sugar bowl this year, L.S.U. and 
Michigan State, were both beaten by 
Maryland last year . . . College boxing 
is a goofy business . . . You get a bid 
before you win, then when you win and 
beat the other teams, you're left out. 

"Speaking of Maryland, the Terps 
are really getting ambitious with their 
new football stadium and now an indoor 
arena which will seat 14,000 for basket- 
ball and 16,500 for boxing." 

Hopes For Heavies 

Kenny Malone, 175, and Paul Oliver, 
145, of last year's ring team, will be 
missing from this year's lineup. Kenny 
graduated and Paul's in the Army. 

Head Coach Heinie Miller reports 
that, as usual, there are lettermen and 
likely looking newcomers in the lower 
weights, but also the usual dearth of 
talent in the two heavy brackets. 

All who report in the 175 and un- 
limited classes will be sure to receive 
special attention. 

"Through the years" Miller says 
"Maryland has produced, from campus 
material, some really great little fel- 
lows. We'd give a lot to just once pro- 
duce a big fellow. That can be done, 
but only if the big fellows show up and 
really try to make the team."

Miller was guest speaker at the Rich- 
mond (Va.) Sportsmen's Club on 28 
December. Subject, "Boxing as a Col- 
legiate Sport."

A Washington contractinjf firm sub- 
mitted the low bid of $85,000 for initial 
e.xcavation work on the new University 
of Maryland stadium at College Park. 

This was the report of John B. Funk, 
State Engineer: 

The bid was submitted by J. O. and 
C. M. Stuart and was $28,140 below the 
next lowest offer. 

Other bids included: 

T. Edgie Russell of Frederick, 
$113,800; Potts and Callahan Contract- 
ing company of Baltimore, $1.'}6,620; 
and Morauer and Hartzell, Inc. of 
Washington, $161,200. 

The bids go to Maryland's board of 
public works for approval. University 
authorities hope to have the .'i^.OOO-seat 
stadium ready for a football game by 
October 1, 1949. 

The Board of Public works approved 
the appointment of Faisant and Kooken, 
engineers to prepare drawings and 
specifications, and of Gavin Hadden, 
stadium expert, and Edmond Preece, 
soil consulting engineer, as consultants 
on the project. 

The stadium project first came before 
the board on September 23, 1947, when 
an $800,000 expenditure by the Univer- 
sity was approved for the stadium, 
$350,000 for a Chapel, and $300,000 for 
a swimming pool. This program was to 
be financed by the excess "student fees." 

The proviso was attached, however: 
Each phase of the building program 
must be submitted to the board before 
the work is begun, together with a re- 
port that cash is available in a suffi- 
cient amount to finish the project. 


Four University of Maryland football 
players accepted invitations to play on 
an All Star all Southern team in a 
charity game against the professional 
Charlotte Clippers at Charlotte, N. C. 

Accepting bids were Fullback Harry 
Bonk, Center Gene Kinney, Quarterback 
Vic Turyn and Guard Ed. Schwartz. 

Gene Kinney also accepted an invita- 
tion to play with the Southern team in 
the Shrine charity football game Christ- 
mas night in the Orange Bowl. 


Maiylaiid's i)asketball team got off to 
an inauspicious stait when they lost 
their opening game to Temple Univer- 
sity, 67 to 49, in the opening college 
basketball double-header at Philadel- 

Maryland kept pecking away at the 
Temple lead and finally whittled it down 
to two points on a beautiful shot by 

Charlie Mack. However, Temple again 
forged ahead. 

Coach Flucie Stewart, who is starting 
his second season as head mentor of the 
Terps will carry a varsity .squad of 16 
players. The only loss from last season's 
contingent is Bill Brown, center. The 
Old Liners will be further strengthened 
by the return of several pre-war bas- 
keteers, who played under Burt Shipley, 
Bill Lake, Bob Yardy, and Charlie Mack. 

From last season's aggregation 
Stewart will have Johnny Edwards, f; 
Eddie Cre.scenze, g; Frank Armsworthy, 
f; Spence Wright, f; Bob Murray, c; 
Walt Pritchard, g; Bernie Smith, g; 
and Johnny Hunton, f. Some newcomers 
from the JV^'s and expected to see plenty 
of action are Jack Myers, c; and Dick 
Taylor, f. From the baseball team the 
Terps have added Bucky Loomis and 
from the Freshman football team, Lee

football team, was an all-Xavy center 
in 1946. He hails from Duncan, Ari- 
zona; stands 6' 3", and weighs 190. 

Maryland plays a 26-game schedule 
this year. The Tei-ps opened at College 
Park against VPI, on December 9. 


Maryland started its soccer season 
with one of the toughest schedules in 
the country. With a full ten game sched- 
ule and four first string players, namely 
John Clark, Charles Worden, Ralph 
Beach and Dick Cleveland, missing from 
the lineup, the Terrapins, coached by 
Doyle Royal, dropped a toss-up game 
to Penn State, 1-0. This was nip and 
tuck. Not being able to use the un- 
limited substitution rule hindered Mary- 
land's chances of winning this one. 

Next on the schedule was another un- 
defeated power house, West Chester 
State Teachers College. Even though 
Maryland outplayed them from the 
field they could get no more than a tie, 
1-1. Two overtime periods were played 
but to no avail. This game cost the 
Terps plenty because nine of the first 
eleven were injured. It was rough 
aplenty. Of the nine injured players 
four were unable to play in the game 
with Loyola. These were: Harold Moser, 
fullback, -severe hip bruise; Jim Barn- 
hart, fullback, who will be out for the 
season with an abdominal injury; Don 
Buck, right halfback, severe sprained 
ankle and Jim Belt, inside right, with 
deep flesh wound in left leg. 

Loyola was next. Although Doyle 
Royal's boys played an excellent, hard 
fought game they came out on the short 
end of the score. Four of our regulars 
missed this game. 

Washington and Lee, undefeated last 
year, could !iot muster enough power to 
give the Old Liners a real tough game. 
The Teri)s won that one, 4-2, even 
though they still had several regulars 
on the sidelines. 

Temple, again headed for the national 
championship was undefeated, untied, 
and unscored on in five games. Mary- 


land was the first team to send a ball 
through their up-rights. This tally did 
not do too much good as the final score 
was 4-1. One of Temple's goals being 
a penalty kick. This game was much 
clo.ser than the score indicates, as Tem- 
ple was out-played completely in mid- 
field. Maiyland had many more shots at 
the goal than did the visitors. 

At Gettysburg, with all the regulars 
back in the fold, except for Jim Barn- 
hart, out for the season, Maryland 
played its best game of the year by 
running up a 6-0 score. Practically 
every line man shared in the scoring. 
Previously Gettysburg had held power- 
ful Penn State to 2-1. 

This year Maryland instigated its 
first freshman soccer team. Approxi- 
mately 30 candidates tried out for the 
team. A five game schedule was ar- 
ranged for the 1948 season. Thus far 
the freshmen have played two games 
and tied both: Mt. St. Joseph 2-2; Glen 
Burnie High School, 0-0, after two over- 
time periods. Plans have been made to 
play the Navy plebes, Johns Hopkins 
freshman and Landon School. 

The Terps moved into high gear as 
they defeated Western Maryland 5-1 
and followed it up with the "big one," 
a 2-0 win over Johns Hopkins. These 
victories were the third and fourth 
straight for the Royalmen who have ran 
roughshod over all opposition after 
dropping three close decisions early in 
the season while badly handicapped by 

The Terps were forced to come from 
behind to win against the Terrors. The 
Terps outplayed Western Maryland 

Gene Volpe led the way for the 
Terps against Johns Hopkins as he 
scored the only two goals of the game. 
Tight defensive play and a wet field 
held the score down. This contest again 
showed John Linz and Jim Belt as old 
reliables on Maryland attack and de- 
fense. The most outstanding play of the 
game, excepting, of course, Volpe's two 
goals, came when Lamont Whipp, Mary- 
land's fine goalie and heavyweight boxer 
made a beautiful save of a Hopkins' 
I)enalty shot. 

These last four wins illustrate just 
how far Coach Doyle Royal's hooters 
have come since the beginning of the

BOB PALMKR, Maryland's sopho- 
more sensation, broke his own 
fonr-niile course record to lead Coach 
Jim Kchoe's Terrapin trotters in suc- 
cessful defense of their Southern con- 
ference cross-country championship. 

In winning- his second sti'ai.nht con- 
ference title, Palmer finished in 19 
minutes 40 seconds, 13 seconds bettei' 
than the course mark he set last year 
against Georgetown. 

Palmer beat Curtis Shelton of V.P.I, 
to the finish line by 42 seconds. F. A. 
Liddell of V M.I. was third by a scant 
two seconds. 

With Go runners competing, eight 
from every school except Maryland, the 
Terps placed five men within the first 
10 to cross the finish line to compile a 
low score of 27. This compared with 
VPI's second place score of 73 and 
enabled the Terps to retain the crown 
they won at Raleigh, N. C, last fall. 

Coach Jim Kehoe's superbly coached 
athletes virtually ran away with the 
meet, as the Maryland entries showed

four mile course. The finish occurred 
on the campus in back of the Women's 
Field House. This was the first time 
that the event had been held at College 

North Carolina took third place with 
a score of 118, William and Mary finish- 
ing next with 135, and North Carolina 
State rounding out the first five with 
140. After these five teams came Duke 
with 164, Davidson with 166, VMI with 
170, and Richmond, finishing last, with 

Jim Umbarger, who was the second 
Terp across the finish line, took fourth 
place, and Herb White, running the last 
cross-countiy race of his collegiate 
career, finished a strong sixth. This 
was perhaps the finest race of his career 
for the slight but stout-hearted harrier. 
It was the first time that Herb had ever 
finished in front of Lindy Kehoe or 
Gene Greer, who placed seventh and 

This closed Maryland's scoring, as 
only the first five men to finish were 
counted in the scoring. Joe Grimaldi 
and Howard Umberger were right up 
front, copping eleventh and twelfth 
places, and making it a field day for 
Kehoe's boys. 

Thus the Cross Country team has coni- 
|)leted an undefeated season, climaxed 
by the winning of the Southern Confer- 
ence title. This is the second season in 
a row that the team has been undefeated 
and the second year in a row that the 
team has won the Conference Cross 
Country Championships. The results of 
dual meets are as follows: 

Maryland 19, Quanlico 39; Maryland 17, 
Duke 45; Maryland 15, Virginia 55; Maryland 
21, VPI 39; Maryland 19, Georgetown 42.

Bob Palmer, Maryland's sensational sopho- 
more, broke his own four-mile course record 
in 19 min., 40 sec, 13 seconds better than his 
previous mark as Maryland successfully de- 
fended its Southern Conference cross 
country championship. 

The team is composed of Bob Palmer, 
Jim Umbai'ger, Lindy Kehoe, Herb 
White, Gene Greer, Joe Grimaldi, and 
Howard Umberger. 

Freshman Team 

The Freshman Cross Country team 
also had an undefeated season and will 
add considerable strength to the already 
strong Varsity squad next year.

Arthur Cook, Maryland's World's Olympic Rifle 
Champion, Wins National Title . . . First In History 
To Annex Both Championships 



AW, that man's in again! 
"What man?" 

"The man with the rifle!" 

Yes, University of Maryland's great 
little rifleman, Arthur Cook, already 
crowned 1948 Olympic world's cham- 
pion, pulled another wunanonly for 
Maryland. The little fellow with the 
rifle, looking like a diminutive, smiling 
schoolboy alongside of his competitors, 
typical, husky riflemen, won the Na- 
tional championship at Quantico. 

Never before in history has any one 
shooter won both the National and 
Olympic titles in the same year. 

The twenty year old Terrapin target 
wizard said the National shoot was far 
tougher than anything he experienced 
ill London last summer. 

Cookie, youngest shooter ever to be 
national titleholder, trounced a select 
field of rifle champions from all over 
the country at Quantico in the National 
Rifle Association shoot-offs. He scored 
a total of 3,150 points of a possible 
3,200 for the lowest winning total on 
the records. This does not deter from 
the ability of the Maryland University 
lad since gale force wind conditions on 
the first day of firing were badly ham- 
pering shooting accuracy. 

"The wind," said Cookie, "was blow- 
ing bullets into the targets sideways. 

"Not only were wind conditions bad," 
he continued, "but you can't dig up 

stiflFer competition than we had at Quan- 
tico. At the Olympics, there were only 
two or three other shooters in the field 
who were real competition. I don't mean 
to take anything away from European 
riflemen. They're tops. But they didn't 
have the equipment to match fine pre- 
cision equipment of the Americans. 

"At Quantico all of us were equally 
equipped — and of equal ability. Combine 
that with 30-mile gusts of wind and it 
makes the toughest rifle match I've ever 
been in." 

Cook defeated G. Wayne Moore, 
Washington, Pa., champion the past two 
years. Moore was right behind with 
3,147. In third place was Robert Per- 
kins, Fresno, Calif., with 3,146. 

Cook, like all modern rifle experts,' 
peers through a special telescope before 
he starts to shoot. He says he can see a 
mirage coming out of the ground, simi- 
lar to rays you see on a highway on a 
hot summer day. This helps him know 
which way — and how much — the wind is 


Arthur Cook, University of Maryland 
World's Olympic rifle champion, won 
the Greenbelt Gun Club's annual invita- 
tional championship. Cook scored a 396 
out of 400. 


So says veteran shooter G. Wayne Moore, 
left, for two years national rifle champion, 
as he congratulates Maryland's little Arthur 

Cook, wearing his Boy Scouts of America 
shirt (he's assistant scoutmaster of Troop 
33). was the center at attraction after the 
match. He was mobbed by newsreel and 
newspaper photographers. 

Cookie was polite to all of them, but when 
he finally broke away he confessed to be 
worrying about missing classes. 

Said youthful Cook, "Gee. I have to get 
back to school. I have an English test 
Thursday. " 

They had an Olympic champion on the 
spot at Quantico but the little Terp proved 
to be a true one and refused to be perturbed. 





A Great Tribute To 
A Great Champion 

/)> Francis Stann 

iThp Washington Slarl =^=^= 

Francis Stann 

WHEN University of Maryland's 
Arthur Cook took the lead in 
the national rifle championships on a 
wind-swept range at Quantico's Marine 
Corps Base the veterans of the game 
looked at each other and winked. 

"They'll have to 
catch the kid now," 
said one of the ex- 
perts. "He won't 
come back to them. 
Cookie doesn't 

He didn't blow, 
either. The 20-year- 
old University of 
Maryland student, 
winner of the 
Olympic title, took 
the national cham- 
pionship in stride. 
An iron-nerved 
little squirt, Cook 
might have made a 
great race rider or, 
given the physical equipment, an out- 
standing quarterback. 

G. Wayne Moore, defending champion 
from Washington, Pa., was talking 
about Cook at the annual banquet of the 
National Rifle Association after the 
matches. Moore, 41, won in 1946 and 
1947, but finished second to Cook at 
Quantico this year. 

"I wasn't beaten by any boy," said 
Moore. "I was beaten by a real tough, 
campaign-hardened shooter. Cook may 
look like a baby without that gun in his 
hands, but when he's on the firing line 
he's all competitor." 

Calls for Practice 

When Cook forged ahead, Moore sus- 
pected he was beaten. "I bore down and 
shot a perfect score, 400, but I wasn't 
surprised when Cook did the same thing. 
He wasn't getting panicky. As a result 
I didn't gain. 

"That kid's all right. He's got good 
equipment and he knows how to use it." 
(Cook's rifle, incidentally, was pur- 
chased second hand. The champ found 
it in a pawn shop.) 

Moore was bitterly disappointed when 
he shoved off for his home. "I wanted 
to make it three in a row," he confessed. 
"Now I may even quit the game. I've 
been thinking about it for some time." 

Why would he want to quit? "Well, 
1 bought a boat last summer and I'd like 
to use it. You can't find time for much 
except rifle shooting if you're going to 
be any good at it. It's like golf — you 
have to stick with it to keep on your 

The next minute Moore was taking it 
all back. "I won't really quit," he ad-

mitted. "I just talk that way sometimes. 
This shooting game gets in your blood." 

Title Won Him $12.50 

There is little financial inducement in 
rifle and pistol shooting under the pres- 
ent setup, although C. B. Lister, execu- 
tive secretary of the N. B. A. has been 
thinking of setting up a professional 
class. When Moore won his first na- 
tional title at Camp Perry he realized 
exactly $12.50 from the championship 
during 1946. 

"The biggest dividend I ever got in 
my two years as champion was a carton 
of ammunition from the boss of my 
hometown shooting club," he laughed. 

Ammunition is a major expense. The 
good shooters use thousands of round.s 
a year. For this reason many pour their 
own cartridges. 

No "Ads" for Cookie 

Cook may fare better than Moore 
financially, chiefly because he is the 
only shooter ever to have won the Olym- 
pic and the United States champion- 
shii)s in the same year. On the other 
hand it's going to look awfully silly if a 
distillery has him switching brands or a 
cigarette manufacturer pictures him 
preserving his T-zone. Not only doesn't 
he indulge in the twin evils, but he needs 
a birth certificate to convince people 
he's over 14. 

National Rifle Association official.- 
say they won't be surprised if Cook 
reigns for a long time. "He probably 
hasn't reached his peak," one of them 
pointed out. "The kid seems to be get- 
ting better each time he shoots. If he 
maintains his interest in the game Cook 
may be champion for years." 

Some of Cook's old boyhood buddie.- 
arc surprised. Eight years ago, when 
Arthur fired a rifle for the first time, he 
was notably bad. At a boys' camp he 
needed extra instruction to catch the 
other kids. 

"I couldn't hit the side of a barn," 
he confesses. 

Now it's child's play for him to hit a 
golf ball the length of a football field 


"Greatest Since Boone" 

WITH Cook the honor guest at 
Washington's Touchdown club 
and introduced as the "greatest Amer- 
ican shot since Dan'l Boone," Bob Addie. 
columnist of the Washington Time.-^ 
Herald, wrote: 

"The Touchdown club's marching ani;

volant (being under full sail) speakers 
fortunately were obtruncated from their 
brobdingnapian egos by the presence of 
a small boy who saved the assembled 
luncheoneers from etherization. (It 
pays to have a handy dictionary.) 

"Anyway, together with the assem- 
blage of football people there was a 
slight, youngster named Arthur Cook 
who looked like somebody's small boy 
escaped from a baby-sitter. The fun- 


niest thinjr in that Cookie is just about

But small bores in rifle parlance means 
a .22 caliber and Arthur was so n'ood he

of 50 meters which is rouphly 5() yards. 
He couldn't account for the fact he 
missed the sixtieth — probably choked 

"Young: Cook, who is a junior at the 
University of Maryland, recently won 
the national championship at Quantico 
and today is just about the best there 
is in his department in the world — albeit 
I know of a few larpe bores who are 
champs in their own right, especially 
with a few snorts. 

Modest Fellow 

"The University of Maryland is proud 
of this kid and so is Washington, D. C. 
He's a native Washingtonian and has 
had a rough time of it. His dad died 
when he was a child and he took to 
selling newspapers and then doing a 
little shooting on the side. It's amazing 
that he should be as proficient as he is 
because big league rifle competition 
represents one of the sternest of all 
tests of steadiness and nerve control. 

"Cookie is a modest little man. He 
was asked if Maryland has a rifle team. 

" 'Yes,' he said seriously, 'and I hope 
I can make it.' 

"Arthur was honored along with 
Bobby Mathias, 17-year-old decathlon 
champion, a few weeks ago and was 
thrilled at being invited to the White 
House to meet President Truman. 

"The story went that the President, 
hearing of Arthur's extraordinary skill 
with a rifle, jocularly hinted that Arthur 
might be valuable in shooting a few 
Republican voters. That prompted one 
Touchdowner to observe: *What a hell 
of a job Arthur did.' 

No Hunter 

"Cookie said seriously that more 
youngsters should be taught to handle 
firearms, his point being that there 
probably would be less accidents. It's 
probably in the way you look at it. 
Some of these young hoodlums of a by- 
gone day in Chicago certainly didn't 
need any more target practice than they 

"But the nicest thing about Arthur 
Cook is that he detests hunting. 'I just 
couldn't bear to hurt anything,' he says 


It will be a long time befoi'e Mai-yland 
students and supporters forget Lu Gam- 
bino, but there is a fellow in the fresh- 
man ranks who is out to make everyone 
forget the past and pay attention to the 
future. This is Ed. Modzelewski, a 6'

got out of the boyhood habit of taking 
things for granted without waiting for 
complete and detailed instructions. For 
instance, when he was a little boy, his 
mama said to him, "Thomas, you can be 
President of the United States, . . ." 
That was enough for Tom. He snuck

I of the sentence; only a comma. So after 
' Tom had gone she finished the sentence

He: "Gee, thanks."

"Baby, I'm even kinder than that."

The brisk little man drew himself up

1948 was a mighty big year for additions to 
the telephone world. 

Your own particular telephone is more 
valuable today, millions of calls go through 
clearer and quicker, because of the manv 
things that have been done to extend and 
impro\e ser\'ice. 

You can call more people, and more 
can call you, because nearly 3,000,000 Bell 
telephones were added to the telephone pop- 
ulation — many in your own community. 

Long Distance is faster and there is more 
of it because 1,800,000 miles of new circuits 
were added. A total of $1,500,000,000 was 
in\'ested in new Local and Long Distance 
facilities in 1948. 

We broke all records for the volume of 
new telephone construction, the dollars we 
put into the job and the number of tele- 
phone people on the job. 

We're going to keep right on working 
and building in 1949 to make vour tele- 
phone ser\ice a bigger bargain than ever.

President Byrd Accorded Alumni Ovation 

DK. H. C. Byrd, President of the 
University of Maryland, presented 
a vigorous defense for the University 
at the 142nd Anniversary Charter Day 
celebration in Baltimore on February 
10. Speaking to nearly one thousand 
alumni, University friends and mem- 
bers of the State Legislature, he gave 
a detailed picture of the present Uni- 
versity and a blueprint of future plans. 
He was given an ovation at the close of 
his address. 

Striking back at recent editorial criti- 
cism in a Baltimore newspaper he 
pointed to the lack of foundation for 
the attacks on the University. 

"The University," he said, "is not 
overbuilt, but rather is far behind in its 
building program with reference to aca- 
demic and research needs." 

Over WEAL 

In a prepared speech, broadcast over 
radio station WBAL, and limited to 
thirty minutes, he was unable to do 
much more than refer briefly to the 
twelve schools of the University. He 
mentioned that the Dental School has 
educated ninety-eight per cent of all the 
dentists practicing in Maryland and en- 
joys the highest accreditation; the 
Medical School provides fifty-five per 
cent of all doctors now practicing in 
Maryland, is a member of the American 
Association of Medical Colleges and is 
fully accredited by the American Medi- 
cal Association; the School of Nursing- 
enjoys full standing among the nursing- 
profession and is respected everywhere 
for its accomplishments; the School of 
Pharmacy has graduated more than 
three-fourths of all the pharmacists in 
Maryland, is fully accredited and stands 
well in the great industry which it 
serves; the Law School is the principal

source of lawyers in Maryland, is a 
member of and is fully accredited by the 
American Association of Law Schools; 
the College of Agriculture, which ranks 
with the best in the country, has four 
major functions, to educate men and 
women to enter the fields of research 
and extension, to carry out research 
under the Experiment Station, to con- 
duct Extension Service work, and, 
through regulatory activities, to save 
the people of the State millions of dol- 
lars annually by prevention of losses by 
insects and disease to animals, plants 
and human beings; The College of Engi- 
neering is accredited fully by the En- 
gineei'ing Council for Pi'ofessional De- 
velopment, the National Agency which 
accredits all Engineering Colleges, and 
with the completion of the new engi- 
neering buildings should take its place 
among the best Engineering Colleges 
of the world; the College of Business 
and Public Administration is a member

of the Collegiate Schools of Business, 
and is accredited by that organization, 
which is the nation's official accrediting 
agency for such colleges; the College of 
Home Economics is contributing far 
moi-e than its size would indicate to the 
fundamental attributes and ideals which 
make Maryland a great state; the Col- 
lege of Military Science and Physical 
Education is organized to train teachers 
and coaches for the high schools and 
furnishes many reserve and regular of- 
ficers for the armed services; the Col- 
lege of Education is constantly helping 
teachers improve themselves and, under 
probably the most outstanding man in 
that field in America, is training new 

Arts and Sciences 

The College of Arts and Sciences re- 
ceived more time in the limited talk 
since it has borne a major share of the 
newspaper comment. Highlights from 
Dr. Byrd's address follow: 

"The College of Arts and Sciences is 
the college in which work basic to all 
of the other colleges is done. It is not 
possible for me to be otherwise than 
cognizant of certain questions raised 
within the last few weeks in regard to 
this college. And I am further cognizant 
of the fact that these questions have 
emanated primarily from a few — a very, 
very few that could be counted on the 
fingers of one hand — graduates of two 
other institutions in Baltimore City. 

"It was my intention to discuss in 
considerable detail comparisons between 
the Arts and Sciences College of the 
University of Maryland and these other 
two institutions. Therefore, I asked a 
committee of our faculty, a committee 
representing each department of the 
colleges of Arts and Sciences of the 
University of Maryland, to examine the 
offerings in every department of these 
other two institutions to compare those 
offerings with offerings by the Univer- 
sity of Maryland College of Arts and 
Sciences; and to compare also the edu- 
cation and experience of members of 

Charter Day, Lord Baltimore Hotel, Baltimore. 

the faculty of the various departments 
of these two institutions with members 
of the staff of the similar departments 
of the University of Maryland. 

"The results of these studies and 
comparisons are in detail on my desk. 
But inasmuch as it is not my disposition 
nor the University's wish to reflect un- 
favorably in any sense on any other 
institutions, it seemed best not to pre- 
sent publicly the material that has been 
gathered. However, these facts are in 
a folder on my desk and may be seen 
by any alumnus of the University of 
Maryland who wishes to satisfy himself 
as to the status of his College of Arts 
and Sciences. 

"Suffice for me to make here three 
unequivocal statements that the facts 
will support: 

"1. The Arts and Sciences College of 
the University of Maryland, as to the 
quality of its work, is accredited by the 
same accrediting agency that accredits 
Columbia, Pennsylvania, Penn State, 

Princeton, and other institutions in this 

"2. The records show that the Uni- 
versity of Maryland's Arts and Sciences 
College provides for a greater quantity 
of work than is provided by the other 
two institutions whose graduates have 
raised this question. 

".i. That the background of education 
of those that teach and carry on re- 
search in the University of Maryland 
Arts and Sciences departments is of 
just as high quality as the background 
of education of those that perform com- 
parable duties in the other two insti- 

"Frankly, I dislike to say anything in 
the way of comparison of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland's College of Arts and 
Sciences with another institution, but it 
does seem that, in view of the odious 
jjublic reflections that have been cast 
on the college of Arts and Sciences of 
the University of Maryland, I should 
give you this assurance as to the quality 


of the University's work in this field. 
The University has respect and high 
regard for the other institutions in 
Maryland and hopes that a few over- 
zealous but misguided alumni will never 
do anything to disrupt the close coop- 
eration the University of Maryland 
wants with those institutions. 

"I wish there were time to discuss in 
detail the basic principles and the or- 
ganization under which the University 
of Maryland operates, and then outline 
to you its broad objectives. It would 
be possible to devote 30 minutes to the 
University's American Civilization Pro- 
gram alone, on how the university is 
developing its educational objectives to 
|)reserve the best of what we call the 
American way of life. It will interest 
you to know that I see a man in this 
group here tonight who has been in- 
strumental in providing the University 
$50,000 for the furtherance of this 

"Also, I wish there were time to tell 
you about the training program the 

Charter Day, Lord Baltimore Hotel, Baltimore. 

University is developing- for Foreign 
Sei"vice. If America is to perform suc- 
cessfully its roll of leadership in world 
aflFairs there is nothing more important 
than to give our people a knowledge of 
other peoples and other governments, 
and what international business and 
diplomacy really entail. 

"No education is deepening and large- 
ly significant without development of 
the highest spiritual conceptions in the 
individual citizen. On this depends much 
of the high type of citizenship that we 
need for the America of the future. 
The University is giving very real at- 
tention to this phase of education. 

"Much could be said about the phi- 
losophy that lies back of state univer- 
sity education, but for tonight I shall 
sum up our belief in one sentence, 
namely, that it is our deep conviction 
that education that will reach, in one 
way or another, all the people must be 
provided if democracy is to survive. The 

hope of this nation to win the struggle 
it is now making on a world-wide basis 
is to make certain, through education, 
that the people recognize and appre- 
ciate the deep and lasting values in- 
herent in our republican form of 

"And, now, may I give you four more 

"(1) That the University of Mary- 
land has not asked the Governor and 
the Legislature for one penny, either 
for buildings or maintenance, above 
what it considers is needed to meet the 
needs of the people who seek the Uni- 
versity's services. 

"(2) That the University of Maryland 
has not asked the Governor and the 
Legislature for one cent for building 
that does not represent a need of its 
teaching or research functions, and that 
its building program is far behind in- 
stead of ahead of its academic and 
research needs. 

"(3) That the University of Maryland 
is convinced that the funds it requests 
of the Governor and Legislature for its 
development ai-e funds that will pay 
dividends to the people and the state 
and the country, either in dollars and 
cents or in those finer values so neces- 
sary to maintain successfully our lead- 
ership in the world, or in both. 

"(4) That the University's budget is 
placed in the hands of the Board of 
Public Works, in the State Comptrol- 
ler's Office, and in the State Budget 
Director's Office, in a form that gives 
the state fiscal authorities more definite 
and clearer information about the uni- 
versity's operations than any other de- 
partment in the state government; and 
that the University is under closer re- 
strictions in regard to its fiscal opera- 
tions than any other state University 
in America; and that the University's 
method of handling its finances is an 
open book to members of the state of 

Maryland who wish to come to the 
Business Office of the University and 
make a study thereof. 

"As President of the University of 
Mai-yhmd, I am fully cotrnizant of many 
untrue and inaccurate rumors that have 
been spread about the University. In- 
ferences that have been thrown out for 
public consumption are so far from the 
truth that if they were not deliberate, 
they show an ignorance that is not 
worthy of expression in the columns of 
a big newspaper. Be this as it may, 
there seems to be a deep and funda- 
mental difference between this news- 
paper and the President of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland concerning the neces- 
sity for education. A recent editorial 
stated this difference very clearly. It 
said that: 

"It is common knoivledge that no 
very considerable proportion of high 
school graduates either need or are 
truly benefited by attendance at an in- 
stitution of higher learning." 

An Astonishing Statement 

"This is an astonishing statement. 
Such an expression should have been 
uttered in the Middle Ages. More di- 
rectly stated, this means that only a 
few of the people should be educated 
and that they should tell the rest of 
the people what to do. We see in Eu- 
rope, in China, in India, the chaos that 
results from this principle of education. 
We also know what that chaos has cost, 
and is costing us. 

"The next sentence in the paragraph 
in the editorial above quoted says: 

"Illogical, adolescent fashion rather 
than the good of the individual and of 
the community is the cause of the pres- 
ent flood of matriculates." 

Tragic Conception 

"What an indictment of the hundreds 
of thousands of young men, many of 
whom are maimed, who went through 
the fires of battle to protect the editor 
who wrote this, and who now are trying 
in the colleges of the country to es- 
tablish for themselves a better place 
in life. What a tragic conception to 
express of the thousands of families 
making all kinds of sacrifice to help 
their sons and daughters a rung or two 
upward on the ladder of life! Such a 

i'komine:nt old gkads 

Dr. Geo. A. Bunting, Pharm. '99, and Mr. 
Mahlon N. Haines, Agr. '96. 

conception of the ambition of people to 
better their lot in life, carries with it its 
own condemnation! 

"The president of the University of 
Maryland believes that all the people 
must be educated if they are to dis- 
charge intelligently at the polls their 
responsibility of citizenship. The presi- 
dent of the University of Maryland be- 
lieves that colleges and education are 
not for the well-to-do only, nor are they 
for the brilliant students only. He be- 
lieves fimily that the poor Polish or 
Italian boy in East Baltimore; the poor 
farm boy in Garrett County, Charles 
County, and Somerset County; the son 
and daughter of the oysterman ; the child 
of the humble laborer in the streets of 
Baltimore or in the railroad yards of 
Cumberland, are just as much entitled 
to educational opportunity as the son 
and daughter of the well-to-do in the 
Oilman Country School or in Bryn 

Open to All 

"And the president of the University 
of Maryland believes further that edu- 
cational opportunities should be open 
to all citizens, irrespective of race, color, 
or religious creed. Also, he believes 
that wherever government sei^vices are 
needed to insure the reasonable well- 
being of people, such services should be 

"As to the cost to the state of putting 
into effect such services as are exem- 

I)lified in the work of state universities 
and in the public schools, I have every 
confidence that the people of this state, 
who in 1948 were willing to spend 
$209,557,000 on alcoholic beverages, are 
willing to spend l/7th of that amount 
upon the welfare of their children and 
to preserve the principles that give 
them their fieedom. 

Limited \'iews 

"Those with such limited views on 
education as are here quoted have ex- 
pressed the opinion that the President 
of the University of Maryland is not 
an educator. The President of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland could wish no 
higher compliment. 

"A second editorial statement is not 
only just as astonishing, but is alarm- 
ing as well. Listen to this: 

"... the productive capacity of the 
community is reduced when able-bodied 
young people are driven by the pressure 
of families and friends to pretend they 
want what college has to offer." 

"What a thought for a big newspaper 
to be attempting to promulgate in this 
day, when to live, our people must have 
a common purpose to preserve rights 
and privileges common to all. The idea 
that the coal miner's family must al- 
w-ays be coal miners; that the street 
sweeper's family must always be street 
sweepers, is as dead, if democi-acy is to 
sui-vive, as the divine right of kings. 
No, my friends, the day when only the 
selected few could have opportunities 
for education is gone. If those of great 
wealth are to presei-ve the fruits of 
their labors, education must be avail- 
able to all, so that on election day the 
voice of the people will be sound in its 

"Your" University 

"And as long as the controlling in- 
fluences of the newspaper in which 
these excerpts appeared, continue in 
their narrow conception of what con- 
stitutes education in a democracy, the 
fight will have to go on. 

"This is your state university: its 
campus, the state; its clientele, the 
people of the state."

Alumni Brave Weather To Back University Policy 

"T^^EARLY one thousand alumni and 
^^1 friends of the University of 
Maryhind, including: more than fifty 
members of the State Legislature, trav- 
eled through a snowstorm to assemble 
in Baltimore on February 10 for the 
first Charter Day banquet since 1941. 
The storm, which caused a number of 
late cancellations, failed to dampen the 
enthusiasm of those who came to hear 
a convincing: defense of the University 
by Dr. H. C. Byrd and Alumni President 
Arthur I. Bell, both of whom struck 
forcibly at recent newspaper criticism 
of the institution. 

Prolong-ed applause greeted the 
pointed comments of these speakers but 
two members of the board of Regents 
hit the most responsive chords. Judg-e 
William P. Cole, Jr., Board Chairman, 
praised the turnout despite the snow 
and said, "it might be likened to a Byrd 
expedition." He continued, "As I drove 
thi-oug:h the ice and snow- from New 
York, I thought we can get along with 
the clouds and without the help of the 
Sun." He added, "The aim of the Uni- 
versity is to develop an appreciation of 
the bigness and fineness of our govern- 
mental institutions that helps to build 
them up instead of criticism that breaks 
them down." 

Mrs. Whitehurst 

Mrs. John L. Whitehurst, a member 
of the Board of Regents for sixteen 
years, read a message of welcome from 
Mayor Thomas D'Alesandro of Balti- 
more who had to leave early to keep a 
speaking engagement. Speaking for 
herself, Mrs. Whitehurst ridiculed re- 
cent editorial comment concerning the 
lack of an itemized budget for the Uni-

versity when she said, "I am tired of 
having people call me night and day to 
ask how I can continue to serve as 
chairman of the University Budget 
committee for the Board of Regents 
when there is no detailed budget. I 
want all of you to know we have 184 
pages of detailed budget and it is 
available at any time for any alumnus, 
any membei- of the Legislature or any 
citizen of the State to see. I can't un- 
derstand what some people are trying 
to do to us." 

Jimmie Gheen, nationally known 
humorist, caught the thread of strong 
support for the University and its ad- 
ministration as he concluded the pro- 
gram amid a thunder of applause. 

Judges Moylan and Frank 

Judge Charles E. Moylan of the 
Supreme Bench in Baltimore served as 
an extremely efficient, interesting and 
witty toastmaster. Judge Eli Frank was 
chairman of the Charter Day Committee 
composed of presidents of the eleven 
school alumni associations. Through 
their efforts and with the assistance 
from county and town committees, the 
1949 Charter Day event was considered 
the most successful ever held. 

Special credit was given J. M. Swartz 
and J. W. Stevens for their untiring 
efforts as co-chairman in Baltimore. 

Dinner music was fui-nished by Jack 
Lederer's Orchestra and outstanding 
performances were given by guest solo- 
ists, Marjoi'ie Lehman and John Evans. 

Mrs. Whitlock 

Mrs. Roy DeWitt Whitlock, president 
of the Maryland Federation of Women's 
Clubs, was among a number who were 
unable to get to the Charter Day ban- 
quet in Baltimore on February 10 be- 
cause of the severe snow storm. Mrs. 
Whitlock's letter to Judge Eli Frank, 
general Chairman of the affair, is self- 

"Dear Mr. Frank: 

"My absence from the Alumni Day 
banquet was one of those unavoidable 
accidents. I was stranded on Ritchie 
Highway — first because of the road's 
icy condition and because my car 
developed a mechanical complication. 
After being towed from Glen Burnie 
and put into running condition it was 
too late to do anything about letting 
you know. 

"Please know that I am intensely 
interested in the University and look 
forward to the time when the 'grow-

when the Sunpapers will have to ac-

EDtJCATION— Alumni Banquet honoring 
Education Seniors. University Dining 
Hall, Friday, May 6. 

"Thank you for the gracious invi- 


"Elizabeth Whitlock." 


On January 20 the Alumni Club of 
Allegany became the first to hold an 
annual Charter Day celebration. One 
hundred alumni gathered to do honor to 
the University and to hear Dr. J. Ben 
Robinson, Dean of the Dental School, 
present a history of the University 
flavored with comments concerning a 
recent series of newspaper articles 
about the institution. 

Dr. J. Russell Cook, President of the 
Club, served as Toastmaster and a re- 
view of the general alumni program 
was presented by alumni President Dr. 
Arthur I. Bell. Movies of the Duke- 
Maryland football game were shown by 
Assistant Coach William Meek and 
alumni comments were given by Ex- 
ecutive Secretary David L. Brigham. 

Dr. Robinson emphasized that the 
University is very young, having been 
founded just twenty-nine years ago, 
even though the oldest School now a 
part of the University was chartered in 
1807. He emphasized that the present 
University of Maryland and its Schools 
rank with the best in the country and 
that both alumni and the citizens of the 
State can have justifiable pride in their 

Dr. Bell urged continued support of 
the alumni program and gave major at- 
tention to "MARYLAND" magazine. 
He suggested a project for the Club of 
lOCr subscribers for the publication. 

The Club unanimously accepted a Con- 
stitution presented by John Robb who 
.served as Chairman of the Constitution 
Committee. Credit for publicity and 
contact work which assured the success 
of the banquet was given Miss Mary 
Murray and Miss Helen McFerron. 

As a climax. Dr. Robinson was pre- 
sented a set of local crystal glassware 
from the Allegany-Garrett Dental So- 
ciety by Dr. Cook. 





IN my judKnit'iit the most important 
matter before us as alumni is any 
basis that may exist for the attaci< 
made upon our Alma Mater by a sec- 
tion of the Haltimore press. It should 
be remembered, and will, by most of 
you, that this attack ajjainst our Uni- 
versity is not a thiiifr out of the blue. 
Similar attacks have been made from 
time to time during the past twelve 
years, and never in all that time, so far 
as I have been able to discover, has 
there been a word of editorial praise for 
the Univeisity or for Dr. Byrd, not- 
withstandintr the obvious merit of the 
University and of Dr. Byrd's j;ieat con- 
tribution to its jci"owth and acknowledged 

Recalls Earlier Attack 

As many of you may recall, the at- 
tacks in the late thirties were even 
more bitter and determined than they 
are today. Now the basic point of the 
attack is that Dr. Byrd is promoting- 
too much education at too great a cost 
for too many Maryland boys and girls 
who are graduated annually from our 
many high schools. In earlier years, 
the attacks were mainly against Dr. 
Byrd, with the expressed or inferred 
charge that his i)urpose was to build 
up a great political machine. In the 
meantime, it has been proved beyond 
a shadow of doubt that Dr. Byrd's 
great concentration of effort and his 
singleness of purpose have been directed 
toward one objective, namely; that of 
building up and developing a State in- 
stitution of higher learning that would 
be of adequate service to our people and 
to our State. 

And so a portion of the Baltimore 
press now is forced to attack, not from 
the political angle but from the point of 
view that our University is overde- 
veloped. It admits that Dr. Byrd is a 
great administrator but alleges that he 
is promoting facilities beyond the educa- 
tional needs of our people; it is at- 
tempting to show by the use of partial 
and incomplete references to the con- 
ditions of other state institutions that 
the University is not conforming its 
functions to genuine educational needs; 
and by the same partial and incomplete 
data it concludes that our University is 
costing the people too much. In view 
of these charges it is demanding that 
our University now be cut down to a 
size that a section of the Baltimore 
press judges as adequate. 

Should Be Fair. Honest 

Because newspapers go into so many 
homes and are read by so many people, 
both news items and editorials have a 
profound effect on the thinking of the 
jieople. In this circumstance, the press 
should not only be free; it should also 
be fair and honest. 

Since nothing is perfect, a newspaper 
can pick out faults, magnify minor de- 
fects and de-emphasize the great good 
that is being done and the essential

Picture," is Emphasized in

services that are being performed. In 
this instance, the Baltimore paper in 
its repoit on the University, slanted the 
news in such a way as to create in 
many particulars a false picture. Had 
the Sunpapers been successful in carry- 
ing out their purposes to limit the 
functions of the University, as they 
sought to do, it would have been re- 
duced in size to such a limited capacity 
that huge numbers of worthy high 
school graduates seeking and deserving 
admission would be denied the oppor- 
tunities to which they are by qualifica- 
tion and natural rights entitled. 

Would Hurt G.l.'s 

And had the Sunpapers been success- 
ful, our deserving Maiyland G. I.'s 
would have lacked opportunities to con- 
tinue their education — opportunities to 
which servicemen are entitled and which 
they receive in all other States. 

It appears obvious that if a plan to 
cut back the size of the University 
should be adopted, then perforce we 
should be required to cut down the 
numbers in our public high schools, be- 
cause the two levels of education are 
inseparably tied one to the other. 

It is primarily because of the insist- 
ent and untiring efforts of Dr. Byrd and 
the never-let-up struggle that he has 
carried on that we have our great Uni- 
versity today. Had the University of 
Maryland been content to accept ap- 
propriations by the Sunpapers' stand- 
ards our state system of public higher 
education would be in a deplorable con- 
dition today. As alumni, it is our duty to 
contest those forces which definitely are 
antagonistic to the University, and 
which appear to be activated by preju- 
dice rather than by constructive purpose. 

Our Duty to Resist 

It is our duty to resist these forces 
that attempt to determine how many of 
our Maryland boys and girls who are 
graduated from high schools shall con- 
tinue on in higher education. They 
should not be permitted to prescribe the 
number of physicians, dentists, pharma- 
cists, lawyers and nurses who are to be 
supplied our great State; they should 
not say how many of our youth may be 
educated as engineers, businessmen, 
teachers, agriculturists, and how many 
county agents our State shall have, and 
whether the aid and assistance to our 
farmers shall be reduced or terminated. 

We insist these vital questions of 
such fundamental importance to every 
citizen of the State should be left to the 
deliberate judgment of our Board of 
Regents, the personnel of which is com- 
prised of individuals of outstanding 
achievement and of the highest integri- 


ty — men and women who have been 
chosen from various walks of life and 
from various sections of the State be- 
cause it was felt that they, better than 
anyone else, could decide such matters. 

Each alumnus of the University of 
Maryland is a direct beneficiary of the 
great institution. The benefits he re- 
ceives are reflected in the quality of the 
work done at the University, by the 
position it occupies among other uni- 
versities, and by the high esteem in 
which the University is held by the 

Any changes for the better at the 
University, in its general policies, in 
its program of education, in the effec- 
tiveness of its teaching, in the integrity 
of its administration, reflect to the 
credit of the alumni. Any breaking 
down of its program and any lowering 
of the University in public esteem 
would reflect upon the reputation and 
standing of all of us. 

Alumni Obligation 

Finally may I say that you, as 
alumni, have an obligation very dis- 
tinct from any loyalty to your Alma 
Mater. By reason of your prominence 
in your respective communities, you 
bear a responsibility in seeing to it 
that the educational standards of our 
State University are maintained, and 
that proper educational opportunities 
for our youth are insured in order that 
the welfare of our State be safeguarded. 
In my opinion you can accomplish these 
things in a large measure by taking a 
more active interest in your alumni ac- 
tivities, by becoming better acquaint«d 
with what your University does for 
your State, and by supporting whole- 
heartedly and in every way possible, 
the Board of Regents and the President 
of our great University. r

There are several 
ways in which you 
as alumni can as- 
sist in keeping "MARYLAND" maga- 
zine at the present high level. First, 
we need your continued backing as sub- 
scriptions expire for we cannot main- 
tain a publication of this caliber with- 
out wide circulation. Second, talk about 
the magazine to other alumni and let 
them know that much conscious effort 
goes into each issue. Do your best to 
make a subscriber of every former stu-

stories about yourself and other alumni. 
This is the key to a good alumni publi- 

Few will question the vital need for 
"MARYLAND" magazine. We as alumni 
of the University of Maryland are a 
diversified group, having entered every 
possible field of endeavor after leaving 
the various Schools of the University. 
We have two major interests to tie us 
together in a cohesive body with a com- 
mon purpose. The first, of course, is 
the University itself and the pride 
which we have in its progress. The 
second, a force just beginning to be felt, 
is the magazine "MARYLAND". If 
you have followed the development of 
the Alumni Association in the past two 
years, you must of necessity be con- 
vinced that this publication has been 
more than a strong factor in our de- 
velopment. That is why we ask so sin- 
cerely that you do more than just sub- 
scribe. With your interest and a word 
of encouragement to us "MARYLAND" 
magazine should have the highest per- 
centage of circulation of any alumni 
publication in the country. We will not 
be satisfied until this goal is reached 
and we feel sure you who owe so much 
to the University of Maryland have the 
same thought in mind. Our primary 
goal in 1949 must be our alumni maga- 
zine. As it grows in intei'est and cir- 
culation we can without question an- 
ticipate a corresponding strengthening 
of our over all Alumni Association and

Plans for the University of Maryland Chapel have been completed and construction is 
expected to begin next summer. 

Artist's drawing is shown above. 

The Chapel will be built in the traditional University style, Georgian architecture — and 
will have a seating capacity of 1,000. A smaller section in the rear will seat 100. 

Facing East toward the Baltimore-Washington Boulevard, the building will occupy the 
knoll South of the Chemistry building and will replace the historic cannon there now.

Big pleasures and great happiness 
are but many little ones bound together 
as a loaf is many crumbs in an aggre-

finding joy and satisfaction in the little 
privileges of life; a quiet hour in the 
sun, instead of a far-away journey; a 
little outing in the nearby woods, in- 
stead of long trips away; an hour with 
a friend instead of an extended visit 
to relatives; a few- pages of a book in- 
stead of hours of reading at a time; a 
flash of sunset, a single beautiful 
flower, a passing smile, a kindly word, 
a little thoughtfulness here and there 
as the days slips by — these are the 
crumbs of happiness. Do not despise 
them, lest when the evening finds you, 
you be hungry and disconsolate and un- 
happy. Sir Launfal, after traveling the 
world over in search of the precious cup 
found it, you will recall, in the hands 
of a needy beggar at his own gate.

University of Maryland's Collejfe 

of Special and Continuation 


By Jean Garrett 

THE DEMAND for further college 
studies among: employed persons 
in Maryland has been such that in less 
than two years since the establishment 
of the College of Special and Continua- 
tion Studies of the University of Mary- 
land, the enrollment of part-time stu- 
dents taking evening courses in ofT- 
campus centers throughout the State 
and in the College Park area has jumped 
from 1,896 to 2,495. While enrollments 
in about 40 percent of the evening col- 
legs in the United States have decreased 
during the past year and while there 
has been approximately a 10 percent de- 
crease in total evening college enroll- 
ment over the country, the off-campus 
evening program of the University of 
Maryland has shown an increase in en- 
rollment of 42 percent. The most notice- 
able increase has been at the Pentagon, 
where the College of Special and Con- 
tinuation Studies has organized a pro- 
gram of courses held after hours in the 
building for military personnel and 
where there were forty-four students 
in the fall of 1947 and four hundred and 
eighty students in the fall of 1948. 

Increasingly Important 

It is becoming increasingly important 
in all fields of endeavor for a person to 
have a college education. Two genera- 
tions ago, the holding of a college de- 
gree was helpful in securing remunera- 
tive and satisfying employment, but it 
was possible to start in with much less 
formal preparation and work one's way 
upward. Today, a college education is 
virtually mandatory for an individual 
entering the fields of business, teaching, 
administration, advertising, banking, 
the State and Federal services, or any 
one of a vast number of others. 

It was felt that the State University 
was the logical institution to supply the 
special facilities required for employed 

persons to further their education. 
Therefore, the University of Maryland, 
through the College of Special and Con- 
tinuation Studies, has made available 
through 27 off-campus centers oppor- 
tunities for university-level study in the 
fields of history and the social sciences, 
education, chemistry, languages, the 
humanities, nursing, mathematics and 
other subjects. Under the College of 
Special and Continuation Studies, stu- 
dents who may not otherwise have the 
chance to obtain a college degree or to 
do graduate work in their chosen field 
are now enrolled in courses which will 
give them credit towards a degree. Dur- 
ing the past two years over 4,500 stu- 
dents have completed one or more 
courses. All departments and colleges 
of the University of Maryland cooperate 
with the College of Special and Con- 
tinuation Studies to offer accredited 
university courses at the off-campus 

In Baltimore 

The College of Special and Continua- 
tion Studies has its largest off-campus 
center in Baltimore. Other large centers 
are at the Pentagon, the Ordnance Prov- 
ing Ground at Aberdeen, and in various 
military and naval establishments in 
Maryland and the Washington area. 
There are centers in all parts of the 
State, wherever a sufficient number of 
people in a community has evidenced 
interest in a course. Cumberland, 
Hagerstown, Snow Hill, La Plata, and 
other towns have centers where stu- 
dents may do university work for credit. 

Under the College of Special and Con- 
tinuation Studies, the off-campus stu- 
dent is definitely a part of the Univer- 
sity. All courses are approved by the 
Head of the Department and the Dean 
of the College or School concerned with 
the course. Almost all the instructors 
are full-time faculty members of the 
University of Maryland; a few are 
qualified part-time instructors approved 
by the Head of the Department and the 
Dean of the College concerned. The off- 
campus centers of the University of 
Maryland concentrate on degree-

Studies. (See biography on Page 19.) 

requirement courses, although a few 
non-credit courses are given where 

Another off-campus function carried 
on by the College of Special and Con- 
tinuation Studies has been the arrang- 
ing of lecture series for various groups 
in the state. The lecturers are outstand- 
ing members of the faculty. The topics 
range from American diplomacy to 
fashion. This service may be rendered 
to all types of organizations, with cer- 
tain limitations depending on the availa- 
bility of speakers. 

Under Dr. Kabat 

The College of Special and Continua- 
tion Studies, which was organized in 
1947 with Dr. George J. Kabat as Direc- 
tor, is charged with the responsibility 
of coordinating the off -campus program 
so as to secure the maximum advantage 
to the individual student and to the 
community or establishment in which 
the center is located. 

For example, the College of Special 
and Continuation Studies, with the ad- 
vice of the Head of the Department of 
Industrial Education of the University, 
will offer each year there is a demand, 
a complete sequence of courses required

by the Raltimori' Dopaitnieiit of Ediu-a- 
tioii to qualify vocational, occupational, 
and shop center teachers for appoint- 
ment. Hifih school instructors in the 
field of vocational education are no 
longer merely teachers of wood-caivinjj 
or simple metalwork, but are required 
to provide their students with adequate 
skills in any one of a larpe number of 
trades and to counsel the student re- 
garding his cai)abilities and job oppor- 
tunities available. High school instruc- 
tors in this and other fields appreciate 
additional study opportunities in coun- 
seling and guidance techniques. These 
teachers welcome the facilities provided 
by the otf-campus center in Baltimore 
for taking the necessary university 
courses to qualify them for positions in 
industrial education; they are enabled 
to pursue their studies in the evening,

tors in the field of management from 
the University of Maryland have gone 
to the plants to offer courses or semi-

Faculty Committee 
Works Closely With 
All Religious Groups 

By Rosalie Leslie, 

Assistant Dean of Women 

RECENTLY one of the University 
of Maryland deans remarked, 
"Religion on the campus is getting- to 
be a big time business." And so it is! 
In the past five years the number of 
religious clubs has increased from six 
to 14 and the number of part time or 
full time chaplains, from five to 11 with 
3 active faculty sponsors for groups 
that do not have a pastor. The enroll- 
ment of the College Park branch of the 
University has shot up from 1,755 in 
the fall of 1943 to 11,161 in the fall of 
1948, with an attendant interest in the 
religious life on the campus. 

From Students 

Much of this interest has come from 
the students themselves and especially 
from the many G.I.'s whose spiritual 
convictions were either found or re- 
inforced under the baptism of mortar 
fire on the battle fields in Europe and 
in the vast Pacific areas. Many of our 
former service men returned from the 
war determined to do what they could 
to bring about peace and understanding- 
through those channels which adhere to 
the principles of the Sermon on the 
Mount. Mature leadership brought with

ligious program of the campus. 

Upsurge In 

To encourage this upsurge in spiritual 
interest, the Uuniversity, and especially 
the President, have stood ready to assist 
and to provide the facilities. Just find- 
ing space for the religious clubs in a 
University that was "bulging at the 
seams" was a major problem in itself 
for the administration. The increase in 
student enrollment and the teaching 
staff appeared to leave no room for the 
])astors to hold daily consultations with 
their students, yet the University made 
room by setting aside one of the most 
ideal places in the Administration 
Building for a Religious Counsellor's 

Thousands Pass 

Each day thousands pass to and fro 
to their mail boxes by this office. The 
ministers like to be in the "ebb and 
flow" of the student life where they can 
be available to all. They have assisted 
countless numbers in their personal 
problems and in the search for spiritual 
values. To them and to the denomina- 
tional boards that make their services 
available to the students, the Univer- 
sity owes a deep debt of gratitude. 
Through their efforts and guidance the 
religious clubs have become a power 
for good on the campus. Only last 
spring, President Byrd, remarked at a 
luncheon given for the religious work- 
ers, "much of the good will and the 
spirit of cooperation that I have wit- 
nessed on the campus this year I at- 
tribute to the religious clubs." 

The faculty Religious Life Committee 
works closely with all religious groups 
on the campus to assist in their pro- 
grams, to sponsor inter-denominational 
endeavors, and to bring outstanding 
clergymen and laymen to the campus. 
In the past several years the following- 
have brought inspirational messages to 
the University students: 

Religious Leaders 

Dr. Rali)h W. Sockman, minister of 
the Radio Pulpit of America radio pro- 
gram; Congressman Walter H. Judd, 
former medical missionary to China; 
the late Dr. Peter Marshall, Chaplain of 
the Senate; Rev. Samuel Shoemaker, 
Rector of Calvary Episcopal Church, 
New York City; Dr. Ruth Seabury, ad- 
visor to the President of Kyoto Uni- 
versity in Japan; Madame Chu Chih- 
Ming, close friend of Madame Chaing 
Kai Chek; Dr. Sverre Norberg, author 
of "Operation Moscow" and Lutheran 
minister; Dr. Wesley Gewehr, Chairman 
of the University History Department; 
Dr. Raymond Seeger, noted nuclear 
physicist; The Honorable Norman J. 0. 
Makin, Ambassador from Australia and 
lay minister of the Methodist church; 
and Mr. Robert Dewing, Employment 
Manager of the Telephone Company, 
New York City. 

Many Speakers 

These are only a few of the speakers 
the University students have heard; 
the list could be multiplied many times. 
The ideal location of the University — 
so near the "world's capital" — makes 
it possible to present speakers of na- 
tional and international reputation. 
Without exception they, whether states- 
men, businessmen, housewives, or min- 
isters, impress upon the minds of the 
youth that the only true solution to the 
problems confronting individuals and 
nations lies in the realm of the spiritual. 

With 11,161 students in the Univer- 
sity of Maryland, the alumni can readily 
see that indeed "the field are white 
unto the harvest." The proposed chapel 
is a very real and immediate need in 
meeting the challenging and expanding 
religious program. The benefits to the 
State will be very real in lives molded 
through spiritual consecration to higher 
ideals of personal integrity and charac-

CARRYING out the ministry of the 
churches to University of Mary- 
land students occupies the major por- 
tion of the time of five "chaplains" and 
the part time of ten other clergymen, 
faculty members, and other church-ap- 
pointed advisers. These men and women 
form a semi-official group in the uni- 
versity community whose function it is 
to cooperate with the Faculty Religious 
Life Committee in carrying out the 
general campus program of religious 
activity and to give special attention to 
those students whose religious prefer- 
ence or interest leads them to the pro- 
grams and purposes of the various 
campus faith groups. 

Programs carried on by these ad- 
visers within their groups show varia- 
tion, often depending on the time they 
have available to give. Generally, there 
is included counseling with individual 
students and helping in the preparation 
and presentation of group meetings. 
With those who give a major portion of 
their time to this work, programs be- 
come more elaborate. Discussion groups, 
Bible study groups, retreats, confer- 
ences, classes in religious belief, partici- 
pation in group and public services of 
worship and yet other items appear in 
the schedules of these leaders. 

They Carry Out The Pro- 
grams Of Religious Activity 

By Rev. C. William Sprenkel 

The presence and activity of this 
group on the campus reflects the Uni- 
versity's stand that religious growth is 
an important part of tht- individual's

total growth and its judgment that the 
various churches are primarily respon- 

sible for this emphasis in campus life. 
The concern of the several faith groups 
that their students shall not be neg- 
lected during formative college years 
is the other element which makes the 
campus religious advisory group a re- 
ality. Although called by specific faith 
groups to their tasks, it is not the con- 
cern of the religious counselors to be 
"exclusive" in the ser%-ice they render. 
Where help and guidance can be ex- 
tended to a»y student, regardless of his 
religious preference or lack of it. each 
of the chaplains and advisers stands 
ready to share. Nor is it the desire of 
these leaders to maintain a "closed" 
fellowship in their various student 
groups. Rather, it is the aim that while 
giving specific attention to the concerns 
of the faith represented, these groups 
might be channels of sharing with the 
entire campus the best that faith has to

Divine Worship At The University Of Maryland 

Various Religious Groups 
and Organizations Provide 
Spiritual Uplift on Campus 

Sundu> N> orship Services 

A STUDENT in the University of 
Maiyland has sources for divine 
woishij) little realized by the casual 
observer. When the proposed chapel is 
built an extremely active and mature 
religious program is prepared to utilize 

Under the present conditions the 
Episcopalians are in a favored situation 
in that they are the only denomination 
to have a church within the area of Col- 
lege Park. Here, at St. Andrews, is 
held every Sunday a Service of Holy 
Communion at 8:00 A. M. and Divine 
Worship at 11:00 A. M. 

Other worship services are provided 
through on-campus religious clubs. 
These bear witness to a high spirit of 
co-operation and brotherhood. 

The General Protestant Service of 
Divine W'orship is held in the Agricul- 
ture Auditorium each Sunday Morning 
at 11:00. On the First Sunday of each 
month a Service of Holy Communion is 
held. These services are conducted by 
the Lutheran and Presbyterian pastors 
to the students. 

.\ New Project 

Until the fall of 1948 the Methodist 
pastor co-operated in the General Serv- 
ice. At this time a new project was 
launched with the prayers and support 
of all. A University-Community Church 
was established. Services are being held 
temporarily in the New Armory each 
Sunday at" 11:00 A. M. 

A project of co-operation for all 
Protestant groups is the Sunday Eve- 
ning Vesper Service held each Sunday 
at 6:.30 P. M. in the New Armory 

Roman Catholic Mass is said in Build- 
ing EE each Sunday Morning at 9:15 
A. M. and 11:00 A. M., and at 6:30 
A. M. on the Holy Days of Obligation. 
Confessions are heard each Saturday at 
6:30 P. M. and before Mass. 

Jewish Services are conducted each 
Friday ?]vetiing at 7:30 in the Hillel 


'Fireside" in Ihe home of Dr. and Mrs. O. E. Baker, seated in cenler. 

House. Special Services are held on 
Jewish festivals and celebrations are 
arranged for the festivals of Succos, 
Chanukah, Purim and Passover. 

The latest addition to the growing 
list of Worship sei-vices is the Friends 
Sunday Morning Service. On the Second 
and Fourth Sunday, at 9:15 A. M., a 
service of individual communion is held 
in the Dean of Women's Building. 

International Club — 
Godchild of the Religious Clubs 

It was late afternoon, just before the 
winter holidays of 1946 in the lounge of 
the Dean of Women's Building, that 
the first Christmas party for the stu- 
dents from other lands was held. Miss 
Rosalie Leslie, Assistant Dean of Wom- 
en, and members of the religious clubs 
pooled their collective talents to arrange 
the affair. 

It was the first Christmas in the 
United States for most of the students. 
.A boy from Iraq decorated the Christ- 

At closing session oi a relreat. 

mas tree, and an attractive young lady 
from Egypt presided over the punch- 
bowl. Later each student told how the 
Yuletide season was celebrated in his 
land, and then all joined in singing the 
beloved Christmas Carols of this land. 

So successful was this Christmas 
party, sponsored by the religious groups, 
that it was repeated in 1947 in the 
Maryland Room and again in 1948 in 
the home of Dean and Mrs. Harold 

Plans Become Realities 

In the spring of 1947, under the lead- 
ership of Miss Gwen Beck, r. Danforth 
Graduate, who was engaged in Inter- 
faith work, several informal meetings 
were held in which plans for an Inter- 
national Club were discussed. Plans be- 
came realities in the fall when Miss 
Moya Ball, another Danforth Graduate, 
assisted by interested persons, directed 
the organization and program of the 
International Club. The Club was to be 
composed of students from other lands 
and a limited number of American stu- 
dents, and the emphasis was to be placed 
on a mutual exchange of friendship and 

In the spring semester 1948, the first 
officers of the Club were elected. They 
were Bob Marshall (U.S.A.). President; 
Chi-Chou Huang. (China), Vice-presi- 
dent; Marjorie M. Cimmet, (U.S.A.), 
Secretary; Stella M. Gotoiu. (U.S.A.), 
Treasurer: and Jerome Epter, (U.S.A.), 
Program Chairman. Also a constitution 
was adopted. The spring activities were 
climaxed by an international folk festi- 
val featuring the costumes, music, and 

-(14 V 

(lai\cos of other lands. The Recreation- 
al Leadership Class, nniler the leader- 
ship of Mr. Malenawsky, assisted the 
religious groups in making this att'aii- 
so successful. Various embassies in 
Washington co-operated by sending 
talented representatives. There were 
the Scotch Highland Fling and the 
Indian Snake Dance to add color and 

In the fall of 1948 the new officei's of 
the International Club were elected. 
They were Ahmad S. Ayish, (Palestine), 
President; Jerome Epter, (U.S.A.), Vice 
President; Patricia H. Smith, (U.S.A.). 
Secretary; Pedro Rivera-Torres (Puerto 
Rico), Treasurer; and Vishwambhei- 
Nath, (India), Program Chairman. 

Square Dance 

A square dance was held in the fall 
of 1948, following the pattern of the 
one held in the fall of 1947. Both dances 
were given by the church ladies of 
Hyattsville. The flags of all nations 
were used effectively as decorations. 

The "Firesides" in faculty homes, 
begun in the fall of 1947, have con- 
tinued to be an important feature in 
the International Clubs' program. The 
purpose of the "Firesides", according 
to Miss Leslie, is "to help cement 
friendships among the youth of the 
world and thus, through mutual respect 
and understanding, to promote the 
forces of peace and good will." The 
"Firesides" have brought together 
l! American and foreign students for eve- 
nings of cultural exchange and good 
fun. Each "Fireside" has as its princi- 
pal feature the presentation of the life 
and customs of one country. Those 
faculty persons who have "opened their 
hearts and their homes" to these stu- 
dents have been Dr. and Mrs. Russell 
Brown, (Botany), Dr. and Mrs. Harold 
Hoffsomer, (Sociology), Dr. and Mrs. 
Horace Merrill, (History), Prof, and 
Mrs. Harlan Randall, (Music), Dr. and 
Mrs. 0. E. Baker, (Geography), Dr. and 
Mrs. Henry Bechbill, (Education), and 
Dean and Mrs. Harold Benjamin, 

The Hyattsville Council of Church 
Women and the Progress Club of Col- 
lege Park also have aided the work of 
the International Club by inviting the 
students into their homes and by as- 
sisting Miss Leslie in placing the foreign 
students in homes for the Thanksgiving 



and Christmas diimers — a practice be- 
gun in the fall of 1946. 

The religious groups have been glad 
to be instrumental in helping the In- 
ternational Club to establish itself on 
the campus. The grouj) is becoming in- 
creasingly more independent under its 
capable leadership. The oflicers have an 
ambitious program of arranging nation- 
al suppers, picnics, and other cultural 
gatherings. They hope that an Inter- 
national House, where foreign and 
American students can live together, 
will become a reality. Such a centre for 
their activities would help to promote 
the spirit of good will and brotherhood 
for which the religious clubs work. 

The Westminster Foundation 

The Westminster Foundation is the 
Presbyterian Church at work in the tax- 
supported and independent college and 
university. In 1910 the Presbyterian 
Church created a Department of Uni- 
versity Work "to provide a ministry . . . 
that will result in: unreserved commit- 
ment to Christ and His Kingdom, Bible 
study and prayer, understanding of the 
Christian faith, worship and service in 
the Church, growth in a Christian char- 
acter, stewardship, and a Christian 
world order." 

In 1943 the Westminster Foundation 
for the National Capital Area was or- 
ganized. It now serves three universi- 


ties: George Washington, Howard and 
Maryland, under the leadership of the 
Reverend Lloyd G. Brown, the Director. 
At the University of Maryland appi'oxi- 
mately 1,000 Presbyterian students are 
registered. The church recognizes the 
imjjortance of this large field and plans 
to provide an Assistant Director who 
will be located full-time on the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Campus, 

The purpose of the Westminster 
Foundation is achieved through a varied 
program. The Director is an ordained 
minister and serves as pastor and coun- 
selor for the students. One night a week 
a special i)rogram is held, consisting of 
panels, forums, speakers, Bible studies, 
or a social. When the weather permits 
hikes, picnics, beach parties and many 
other enjoyable events are held. 

The high spot of the program is found 
in the Week f]nd Felowship. Twice a 
year, in the spring and in the fall, 
approximately seventy-five students 
gather for a week end retreat in the 
country. Each retreat is based on a 
particular theme of Christian faith, and 
is a time of spiritual deepening. 

The Westminster Foundation coopei'- 
ates with other religious clubs in con- 
ducting the University Chapel services. 
It believes that through worship and 
service of Christ a glimpse of the 
grandeur of life is obtained, a higher 
\nsion of hope is achieved. It seeks to- 
apply the will of God in service by 
special projects which accomplish social 
benefits, and through Inter-Campus Fel- 
lowship meetings. 

Disciples Student Fellowship 

The Disciples Student Fellowship is a 
religious club representing the Disciples 
of Christ's Students on the University 
of Maryland Campus. The D. S. F. 
came into being as a result of the in- 
terest and work of the Disciples Stu- 
dents on the campus and the corpora- 
tion of the Disciples of Christ Churches 
of Washington. 

The purpose of this religious club is 
to help the student to find God and to 
assist him in becoming a better Chris- 
tian Leader; to provide for Christian 



Methodist congregation. Rev. J. Thoburn Bard. 

worship, study, and discussion; to j;ive 
opportunity for Christian fellowship 
and for the building of Christian friend- 
ships on the campus; and to provide the 
teachings of Christ by word and by 
deed. In an effort to carry out this 
purpose, members of the D. S. F. meet 
twice a month in the Dean of Women's 
Lounge. They come to hear an out- 
standing religious leader of this area or 
to participate in a program which they 
have prepared themselves. 

The number of Disciples of Christ's 
Students on the campus is small as 
compared with number of students of 
other denominations. However, it is 
important that those who are there re- 
ceive the benefits that are derived from 
a religious organization on the campus. 

Efforts to keep the church and the 
example of Christ upmost in the minds 
of these students have been rewarded. 

The Wesley Foundation 

By authority of the 1946 session of 
the Baltimore Annual Conference a new 
phase of Methodist student work was 
begun at the University of Maryland 
by the adoption of a student program, 
the appointment of a Wesley Founda- 
tion Director and the formation of the 
Baltimore Conference Board of Educa- 
tion Campus-Church Relations Com- 

The W^esley Foundation on the Mary- 
land Campus has the following for its 

1. To lead students to become fol- 
lowei-s of Jesus Christ and help them 
find a vital personal relationship with 

2. To develop a supporting group 
in which individuals will mutually 
strengthen one another by Christian 

3. To help create a new world order 
embodying Christian ideals by consider- 
ing constructively the problems faced 
on the campus, in the church and the 
world at large. 

These objectives are carried out by 
the various activities of the Foundation. 
Throughout the school year the Meth- 
odist Student Council meets on Monday 
afternoons. Wednesday evenings all 
Methodists on campus are encouraged 
to meet for a two hour fellowship 
period. Week-end conferences are con- 

ducted at stated times throughout the 
year. The recently organized Univer- 
sity Methodist Church, temporarily 
meeting in the University Armory, is 
largely the result of the efforts of the 
Methodist student group. The interest 
of Wesley Foundation in inter-faith and 
inter-Protestant activities is evidenced 
by the large number of Methodist stu- 
dents participating in these activities 
and by the presence of many in positions 
of authority within these organizations. 
In bi-ief, the aim of the Wesley 
Foundation is to build a program within 
the framework of Christian concepts of 
right behavior and of insight into the 
will of God. 

Lutheran Student Association 

The Lutheran Student Association of 
America is represented on the Univer- 
sity of Maryland campus by an active, 
growing fellowship. In addition to en- 
gaging in its own programs the group 
is participating in campus-wide i-e- 
ligious activities as witnessed by its 
representation on the Student Religious 
Council, the Protestant Church Sei-vice, 
and the Student Vesper series. 

Meetings of the "L.S.A." on the first 
and third W'ednesdays of each month 
are handled by teams of students who 
organize the evening's program. These 
have included a panel of four clergy- 
men on the subject of "Lutheran Uni- 
ty," several campus professors, outside 
speakers, movies, parties on special 
occasions, and student speakers. On 
other Wednesday evenings of the month 
there are regular Bible discussions led 

by the Lutheran Pastor for Students, 
the Rev. C. W. Sprenkel, who spends 
several days on campus each week. 
Each spring and fall a week-end retreat 
is held in cooperation with Lutheran 
student groups in Baltimore and Wash- 
ington. Participation in the W.S.C.F. 
through L.S.A. activities is heightened 
by the attendance of many members of 
the U. of Md. campus group at national 
and regional L.S.A. conferences. 

The L.S.A. also sends groups of stu- 
dents into nearby churches to present 
evening programs of talks, discussions, 
pictures, and worship. As an aid to 
overseas students, the L. S. A. is ear- 
marking ^i of its income for Lutheran 
Student Action, benevolence program of 
the L.S.A. A. Furthermore, it has 
"adopted" a group of students in a 
German "D.P." camp and is correspond- 
ing with them to the end of sending 
more tangible aid. 

But L.S.A. 'ers on this campus are 
not "satisfied" with this program. There 
is a constant searching of other means 
for furthering the Kingdom of God on 
campus and in their own lives. 

Maryland Christian Fellowship 

The Maryland Christian Fellowship is 
an affiliate of the Inter-Varsity Christian 
Fellowship, a national inter-denomina- 
tional religious organization. The regu- 
lar meetings of the group included two 
weekly Bible studies and a "Lunch Time 
Talk" each Thursday. Speakers were 
clergymen and lajTnen from Washing- 
ton and the surrounding areas. At least 
once a month one of the Thursday meet- 
ings was devoted to one of the cardinal 
tenets of the Christian faith. The talks 
were followed by a brief question and 
answer period. Several night meetings 
were held with guest speakers. 

Social activities included a "Hobo 
Hike" to Great Falls, Maryland. Mem- 
bers and guests turned out for the 
affair in the weirdest possible costumes, 
and then drove to Great Falls where 
the Hike began. After thoroughly scout- 
ing the Falls and fishing out members 
of the party who managed to soak 
themselves in the river, the hikers had 
supper, followed by singing and a de- 
votional. The Maryland group also held 
a joint conference in November with the 
I. V. C. F. groups of Johns Hopkins and 
the Naval Academy. The meetings were 
held in Annapolis at the Community. 
The speakers were Joseph Bayly, re- 



i>;ional secretary; Hong' Sit, from China; 
and Dr. Fiiilay Paydeii, prolessoi- al 
the Naval Academy. The conference also 
included a tour of the Naval Academx 
and a special "nuisical" concert. 

Several members of the {j'l'tHip at- 
tended the national sumniei' conference 
in Canada, Campus-in-the-\voods, and 
several also attended the natioiuU Mis- 
sionary Conference held in December 
at the University of Illinois. 

B'nai IS'rith Hillel Foundation 

The Hillel Foundation at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland is one of 19o foun- 
dations for Jewish students on collefje 
campuses in the United States, Canada 
and Cuba. Its sponsoring }?ioup is 
B'nai B'rith, the national Jewish service 

In order to give Jewish students an 
understanding and appreciation of their 
religious and cultural heritage Hillel 
offers lectures and forums, religious 
services, holiday celebrations, courses 
in Bible, Talmud and Palestinian life. 
a coffee hour (discussion group) and a 
choral group. 

To develop an interest in current 
Jewish problems and a desire to partici- 
pate as leaders in Jewish life in the 
future Hillel conducts an annual drive 
for the United Jewish Appeal, which 
raised over $1,000 last year. The stu- 
dents themselves publish a paper, the 
Hillel Herald, and conduct a coopera- 
tive kosher supper club. 

Hillel encourages interfaith activities, 
participates in Religious Emphasis Day 
and holds about six joint meetings with 
other religious clubs during the year. 

Affiliated with Hillel is the local 
chapter of I.Z.F.A. (the Inter-collegiate 
Zionist Federation of America). 

The Hillel Movie Series is open to all 
students on the campus. Dances and 
other social activities round out the 
program of the Foundation. 

Dr. A. L. Sachar, chairman of the 
B'nai B'rith Hillel Commission, has 
pointed out: "A Foundation neither 
separates nor segregates. It is not 
meant as a substitute for university life 
or for extra-curricular activity. It is 
planned as a supplement. It operates 
on the principle that the patterns of 

1 1 






Jewish life are important in the com- 
I)osite of western civilization, and that 
the university is enriched when it sup- 
plements the resources of the campus 
with the best in the Jewish tradition. 
Far from separating the Jew from the 
rest of the student body, the Foundation 
adds to his dignity on the campus. For 
it becomes the authorized spokesman 
for the Jewish tradition and is better 
able to interpret it than individual stu- 
dents who have neither the background 
nor the maturity." 

Study Group of Religious Philosophy 

The Study Group of Religions Phi- 
losophy began in the spring of 1946 
with a small nucleus of Unitarian stu- 
dents working with a Unitarian advisor. 
Other students have been attracted to 
the group because its program is intel- 
lectual rather than social and because 
it invites other denominational pastors 
to speak in a series on comparative 
religion. This has been a liberal group 
for seekers rather than an orthodox 
group of settled worshipers. 

Unitarian ministers from Washing- 
ton who have spoken to the group are 
Dr. A. Powell Davies and the Rev. Gil- 
bert Phillips. Dr. Seth Brooks of the 
Universalist church of Washington and 
the Rev. Waldemar Argow of the 

Baltimore Unitarian-Universalist church 
have also spoken. Dr. Winfred Over- 
holser, outstanding psychiatrist and 
Unitarian spoke before this group and 
the Psychology Club in a joint meeting. 
Meetings have been held with the priest, 
the rabbi, the Methodist, Lutheran and 
Baptist pastors as leaders. Non-chris- 
tian students, Hindus, Moslems and 
Buddhists have also led the group dis- 

The Gioup introduced Dr. Charles 
Baylis, new head of the Philosophy de- 
Ijartment, to prospective students of 
philosophy. Dr. Baylis spoke in Februai-y 
on "Free Will and Moral Responsibility." 


Friends Student Group organized in 
the fall of 1947. At the monthly meet- 
ings the first year the principles of the 
Society of Friends were studied. Her- 
bert Hadley, Secretary of Washington 
Friends Meeting, and Harold Tollefson, 
Secretary of Baltimore Yearly Meeting, 
were guest leaders on two occasions. 

This year (1948-1949) the group is 
using a pamphlet "Building Tomorrow" 
as the basis for discussions at the 
monthly meetings. Herbert Hadley met 
with us one time. At another Hulda 
Randel interpreted an American Friends 
Service Committee film on Germany.

The Canterbury Club 

Although the Canterbury Club is an 
Episcopal Student Organization it wel- 
comes into its association any student 
not affiliated with a religious group on 
campus. The Reverend Mr. Orth and 
The Reverend Mr. Acton are the student 
Chaplains and act in an advisory capaci- 
ty to the Club and take an active in- 
terest in its plans and varied programs. 

Under the leadership of its officers: 
Cary Hawthorne, President; Luther 
Frantz, Vice President; Marilyn Lang- 
ford, Secretary; Emily Drovin, Treas- 
urer; Nancy Wulfert, Publicity Director, 
the Canterbury Club has expanded its 
l^rogram to meet the needs and desires 
of a larger number of its approximately 
1,220 students. This year has seen the 
organization of the Canterbury Chorus, 
a group of some thirty students in- 
terested in singing sacred music, under 

the direction of Mr. Sherman Kreuz- 
burK:. To the regular 2n<l and 4th 
\\'e(hiesday eveiiiiijj meetings of the Club 
have come some oulstandinK speakers 
and to the 1st and ."{id Wednesday eve- 
ning Discussion Group meetint^s have 
come a larger number of students in- 
terested in a round table forum dis- 
cussion on some subject of student con- 
cern in the realm of morals and re- 
ligion. Next semester the Discussion 
(Jroup will begin a series of meetings 
on the subject: "What Makes A Suc- 
cessful Marriage?". February will also 
mark the inauguration of The Study 
tirouj) (each Sunday evening at 8:00 
P. M., St. Andrew's Church) designed 
to meet the needs of those students 
who desire to know more of the history 
and meaning of the Christian Faith, the 
Church, and the Bible. 

On the social side C'aiiterbury Club is 
already at work on the i)lans for a 
dance in February. Later on in the 
year there will be skating parties (this 
includes a special demonstration by Mr. 
Acton and Mr. Orth). There will also 
be included in the social calendar for 
the next semester a number of field 
trips to nearby i)oints of interest. 

The Canterbury Club is sincerely in- 
terested in carrying forward the sj)irit 
of unity and cooperation among the 
various religious groups on the Mary- 
land Campus and to them it extends its 
best wishes and God's blessing for a 
year of successful service. 

Christian Science 

The Christian Science Organization 
was officially recognized by the Mother 
Church three years ago. Since then 
i-egular meetings have been held weekly 
in the Women's League Room, and out- 
standing speakers, such as Roscoe 
Drummond, have been presented. At 
present there are 74 Christian Science 
students on the campus. Even though 
the Club is small in numbers it is a 
devoted and loyal group. 

The Newman Club 

The Newman Club at the University 
of Maryland had its beginnings in the 
year lii'M) when there were about 350 
Catholic students attending the Uni- 
versity. Since then, with the exception 
of the war years, it has enjoyed a 
steady growth corresponding to the 
progress of the school. Today there are 
over 2,200 Catholic resident and day 
students pursuing their education here. 

The increase in numbers has resulted 
in a greater number of activities and 
has taxed the capacity of the facilities 
in use. Mass is offered twice on Sun- 
days in one of the large classrooms of 
one of the temporary buildings erected 
after the war. At the last Mass on 
Sundays this room which holds 300 
seated and several more standing is 
filled to overflowing. On feast days as 
well as on other days of devotion, 
Catholics are given the opportunity to 
attend Mass at the University. The 
attempt is made to provide the Catholic 
students with as many of the spiritual 
benefits of their religion as possible. 
An annual mission is held during Lent 
to give them an opi)ort unity to reex- 

amine their lives in the light of the 
teachings of Our Divine Savior. 

The Newman Club is the social, in- 
tellectual and religious club for Catho- 
lics on the campus. Meetings are held 
on the first and third Wednesdays of 
each month. A small social is held in 
connection with each meeting and from 
time to time a pi'edominantly social 
meetitig is planned. These meetings as 
well as a coffee hour after Mass help 
the students to become better acquainted. 
Annually the Club sponsors the Snow 
Ball Dance at the beginning of the 
second semester. Lectures are given 
regularly by prominent Catholic speak- 
ers to stimulate the intellectual life of 
the students, while courses on doctrinal 
01- moral subjects are made available 
during each semester. Currently a 
course in Christian Evidences or Apolo- 
getics is being given on Tuesday after- 
noons for those who desire a better 
understanding of their religion. 

The Newman Club looks forward to 
greater progress in the future with a 
confidence that is buoyed uj) by the 
never failing cooperation and support 
of the University. 

Baptist Student Union 

The Baptist Student Union at Mary- 
land University dates back to the year 
1929. In this year a group of students 
who had attended a Baptist Student 
Union Conference in North Carolina de- 
cided that there should be a local or- 
ganization at Maryland University. This 
initial step was helped by a similar 
action taken by some students at the 
George W'ashington University. Togeth- 
er these two student groups made a 
joint request to Dr. Frank Leavell, the 
Director of the Baptist Student Union 
in Nashville, Tennessee, for definite help 
and advice. Dr. Leavell sent an ex- 
perienced Student Worker to direct the 
organizational plans at Maryland and 
George Washington Universities. Ever 
since, there has been a very close tie 
between the Baptist Students of both 

The Bai)tist Student Union program 
emphasizes first of all, the importance 
of the local church. The organization 
is interested in enlisting every student 
into the full life of the denomination. 
In order to accomplish this purpose, the 
Council of the Baptist Student Union, 
composed of interested and consecrated 
students, carries on the real business 
and detailed planning of the unit on the 

The most important phase of the 
B.S.U. at Maryland University is the 
Noon Day Devotions Meeting — held 
Monday through Fridays from 12:10 
P. M. to 12:45 P. M. These are student 
directed sessions with occasional out- 
side speakers chosen from the faculty 
and ministers from nearby churches. 
These daily meditation periods have 
been a real source of inspiration to 
many students. 

Retreats are held at the opening of 
.school. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and at 
the closing of the school year. Once a 
month the Maryland University B.S.U. 


meets with the Baptist Students of 
Washington, D. C. for an evening of 
Christian fellowship. Prominent speak- 
ers of various fields are invited to ad- 
dress these meetings so that the stu- 
dents may be acquainted with a whole 
picture of i)resent day issues. 

Two students, former officers of the 
Maryland University B.S.U., are now 
serving abroad in the field of medical 
missions — one in Burma and the other 
in Ecuador. Thus, the Bajjtist Student 
Union attemj)ts to inspire students to 
assume some degree of Christian lead- 
ership in their own communities as 
future citizens and in the service of 
tremendous world needs too. 

Albright-Otterbein Club 

This is one of the lighter moments 
during one of the recent Albright-Ot- 
terbein Club meetings when Dr. George 
E. Schnabel, club advisor, told of his 
recently completed experiment in the 
New York state pri.sons for the Federal 
Council of Churches. He answered the 
question, "Is God on the Side of The 
Persecuted?" Ken. Spilman, on the left, 
is the club's president. 

The Albright-Otterbein Club, com- 
posed of Evangelical United Brethren 
students, is probably one of the most 
unique religious groups on the campus 
in that it was organized in 1947 by the 
students themselves, rather than the 
church. These students set a precedent 
that has since been one of the motivat- 
ing forces behind student work in their 

Meeting every other Wednesday eve- 
ning by the fireside in Rossborough Inn, 
an atmosphere of understanding and 
friendliness is present. This provides a 
constant witness that a strong faith can 
be fun and at the same time be ap- 
plicable to every demanding problem 
throughout student days. 

In March the club is holding its an- 
niversary banquet and later in the 
semester a retreat at Camp Conoy for 
all the E.U.B. students of the area. 

Student Religious Council 
— Henry Detwiler, Chairman 
The Student Religious Council is 
composed of two representatives from 
each religious club. The purpose of the 
Council is to work co-operatively on 
projects that will benefit the campus. 
The major undertakings are setting 
up an information table at the time 
of registration, arranging to have 
Christmas Carols i^layed from Morrill 
Hall, promoting the "Religion in Life" 
observance, and sponsoring the W'orld 
Student Service Fund drive. The Council 
seeks to be a clearing house for all 
matters pertaining to the welfare of 
the University religious program. 

Religious Music 

The members of the Music Depart- 
ment Faculty and the Student Membei-s 
of Musical Organizations have coop- 
erated in every possible way with the 
Religious Life Committee in the effort 
to emphasize the spiritual side of the 
life of the student on the campus of 
the University of Maryland. From tht 

two Choral Or^fanizations (Men's Glee 
Club and Women's Chorus) students 
have been selected to form a choir which 
sings at the annual Haccalauieate 

On Religious Emphasis Day in '47 the 
Men's Glee Club and the Women's 
Chorus participated in the service held 
in the Ritchie Coliseum. Just before 
the Christnuis holidays the two singing 
groups and a unit from the University 
Band sang and played carols and an- 
thems in the University Dining Hall 
during the dinner hour. Later the same 
evening these groups participated in 
the carol singing and pageant presented 
at the annual Christmas Tree Lighting. 

Probably the most pretentious effort 
in sacred nuisic was the presentation of 
Handel's "Messiah" as sung by the com- 
bined glee clubs of over one hundred 
voices and soloists from the faculty and 
student body on December 14th, 1S)48 
in the Ritchie Coliseum. This is planned 
to be an annual feature of the Christmas 


Be diligent in your search for the 
truth. Hold tenaciously to the truth. 
The nioi'e truth you acquire the greater

Senator Millard E. Tydings, Chairman of 
Ihe Senate Military Affairs Committee and 
member of the Board of Regents of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, pictured above, was 
presented an honorary membership in the 
Pi Sigma Alpha fraternity Tuesday, January 
11, at a banquet given in his honor at the 
University of Maryland. Pi Sigma Alpha is 
the national honorary fraternity which 
recognizes outstanding students and promi- 
nent men in the field of Government and 
Politics. Senator Tydings was chosen by the 
fraternity for recognition because of his 
outstanding service to the state and the na- 
tion in his long career as a public servant. 
The presentation of the membership and 
key was made by Murray McColloch, vice 
president of the Maryland chapter of the 
fraternity. The senator spoke informally to 
the membership of the fraternity. At th< 
same banquet, the following students were 
initiated into Pi Sigma Alpha: Louis Gelling, 
Franklin Goldstein, Frank Hirsh, Mary Mc- 
Clenon, Edmund C. Mester, Neil Tabor, and 
Mary Urban.

operation with the educational and 
training i)ranches of the Navy oHices 
concerned. These Naval establishments 
have been al)le to train persons for 
highly specialized work with greater fa- 
cility as a result of the cooperative 
arrangements made with the College of 
Special and Continuation Studies. The 
fact that selected graduate courses are 
being offered has already had a tendency 
to enable the establishments to employ 
better people, who wish to advance 
themselves in their chosen fields. In 
some instances it has been found that 
the level of work in various branches 
has been raised as a result of the 
courses given. Not only increased basic 
knowledge, but fresh ideas and new 
methods of approach have resulted. 

In the modern conception of the Uni- 
versity, institutions of higher learning 
should be an integrated part of the 
society in which they are found. 
Through the off-campus centers, the 
University of Maryland can contribute 
more directly to the social and economic 
life of the State. All phases of endeavor 
have been covered, the social sciences, 
education, industry, labor, and mining. 
For many individuals, especially em- 
ployed persons, the off-campus center is 
the answer to broader educational op- 
portunity and the resultant betterment 
of social well-being. The College of 
Special and Continuation Studies will 
expand its program in accordance with 
the needs and demands of the people of

Herlin Winter 

A LETTER has just come from Ger- 
many. R. H. "Dick" Lansdale, 
Jr. '4:5 A & S, has been over.seas for 
two yeais and has been active in lej;al 
efforts connected with the Number^ 
trials. Many who saw sei-vice in the 
European theater will be interested in 
this description of a winter in Berlin. 
In his own words and from a perfect 
vantage point he says: 

"Oh, yes, Berlin . . . Well you see 
there is a blockade on and you can't get 
out of Berlin except by air. This means 
you get out very seldom. Prior to one 
Novembei- we had no coal in either the 
office or our home and a number of 
people including myself were sick with 
grippe or bad colds. Since then we have 
had coal and the weather has improved 
to the extent that this minor hardship 
has vanished. The threat still hangs 
over us all the time. For instance, dur- 
ing the past week Berlin and Frankfort 
have had atrocious fog with the result 
that flights have virtually ceased. At 
this very instant I hear the second 
plane I have heard in two days. 

There is no likelihood of any harm to 
Americans. If it turns out that the 
American colony cannot be supplied un- 
questionably most will be flown out. 
But the weather is a warning of the 
problems faced by the Germans this 
winter. There is no fear here of the 
Russians as far as the personal safety 
of Americans is concerned. Some 
months ago that was not true and a 
great deal of serious thought was given 
the dangers and threats of them. (An- 
other plane is now going over). Every- 
one, I think, is living here as calmly as 
you are in the States." 

Painting of the Month 

Colonel James P. Wharton, head of 
the Art Depaitment of the College of 
.Arts and Sciences, University of Mary- 
land, announces the opening of a perma- 
nent, monthly exhibition of the out- 
standing painting created during the 
current year by students enrolled in the 
art classes. 

The selected painting, chosen by a 
joint art-students-faculty vote, will 
hang for one month in the Administra- 
tion Building lobby. The art student 
selected each month will automatically 
become a member of an exclusive art 
club on the Camj)us, called "The Paint- 
ing of The Month Club," and will re- 
ceive a special membership card. 

The Club is open only to those art 
students whose work has been chosen 
as a Painting of the Month. The selec- 
tion of the painting for the current 

The Alt Department also has an- 
nounced that prizes and certificates of 
achievement will be awarded to the out- 
standing ai't students for the current 
year, 1948-49. Colonel James P. Whar- 
ton, Head of the Art Department, said 
that two donations have been received 
by the Art Department foi- this purpose. 
$100.00 has been donated by Mr. Herbert 
M. Brune, Jr., President of The Art 
Foundation, Inc. of Maryland. The other 
donation, also totaling $100.00, was 
given to the Art Department by a friend 
and alumnus of the University of Mary- 
land. This prize money will be divided 
appropriately among the following six 
categories: Sculpture, Landscape, An- 
tique Drawing, Life Drawing, Still Life 
and Portraiture. 

Any work completed in the art classes 
during the current year 1948-49, includ- 
ing the winneis of the Monthly Painting 
of the Month competition, may be sub- 
mitted to the grand art exhibit, which 
will be held at the end of the year in 
the administiation building. Winners 
will be judged by an outside jury of 
artists selected by the faculty from 
Washington and Baltimore. Prizes will 
be awarded at a special ceremony dui- 
ing the exhibition. This marks the first 
time that the Art Department has 
awarded prizes of this natuie and the 
final, grand art exhibition promises to 
be a milestone for the Art Department 
of the University of Maryland. The 
students, faculty, and general public 
will be invited by the Art Department 
to attend the final exhibition. 

The first competitive exhibition of 
student's art work held at the Univer- 
sity was also announced. The exhibition 
continued fiom January 18 to 28. 

The puipose of the exhibition was to 
select from the work of the art students, 
^'ve paintings, each of which will hang 
*"or one month in the Administration 
Building lobby. Four of these paintings 
were selected by a joint art faculty- 
student vote; the fifth selection was 
made on the basis of the popular vote. 
The art students whose works are se- 
lected will automatically become mem- 
bei-s of an exclusive art club on the 
campus, known as the Painting of the 
Month Club, and each will receive a 
special membership card. The selection 
of these paintings will in no way dis- 
qualify them from competition in the 
f^nal grand art exhibit to be held the 
latter part of May. 

Virginia De Atley Brown, a graduate 
student, was .selected as the first winner 
of the "Painting of the Month Club" 

Mrs. Brown has attended summer art 
classes at Miller's Cabin in Rock Creek 
Park and at the Corcoran Gallery of 
Art. She first began to paint in oils 
under Professor Wharton while a senior 
here last semester.

Martha Ross Temple (B.S. 1931, M.S. 1932, 
Major in Foods and Nutrition) pictured 
above, is in her 11th year as Director of 
Women's Programs at Radio Station WFBR 
in Baltimore. Martha Ross does 2 programs: 
"Its Fun To Cook"— 12:45 to 1:00 P. M. Mon- 
day through Friday, and "Every Woman's 
Hour" — 4:30 to 5:00 P. M. also Monday 
through Friday. The Wm. Schluderberg-T. 
J. Kurdle Co. sponsors the "It's Fun to 
Cook" program, which has been on the air 
for five years and is considered the most 
popular women's daytime program in Balti- 
more. Letters to Martha Ross for "It's Fun 
to Cook" average 1,000 a week. 

"Every Woman's Hour" features inter- 
views with interesting personalities: during 
one week, Martha Ross interviewed a wom- 
an from Rangoon, Burma, who told of wom- 
en in her country; an owner of a Tea Room, 
who gave some of her interesting recipes; 
the Vice President of the Girl Scout Council 
in Baltimore who made a plea for their 
Camp-Development Drive; and an author 
of children's books who is also an artist. 
Fashion, food — in fact anything of interest 
to women is featured. A national sewing 
contest with SS60 in local prizes, a chance at 
SlOO in national prizes and a 3-day all ex- 
pense trip to New York City is also to be 
featured in March. 

Two programs a day on the radio is not 
an easy schedule but Martha Ross has found 
time to do many other interesting things. 
She talks to Women's Clubs, gives fashion 
shows, belongs to the baltimore fashion 
group, and has served as President of the 
Women's advertising Club of Baltimore. 
Martha Ross began her career as home econ- 
omist at McCormick and Company where 
she did recipe testing and developed new 
recipes for the use of spices and extracts. 
From there she went with Neville & Hitch- 
ings, publishers, representatives in Philadel- 
phia. She conducted cooking schools for 40

sented by this firm. While at the University

equipped to pursue caieers in theii 
chosen fields of Home Economics. The 
tiaining will include practice in curient 
techniciues in cookery and in woiking 
with and evaluating new food [)roducts; 
investigating and evaluating the per- 
formance of household eciuipment, sup- 
plies, and methods used in cooking, 
laundering and in the care of the house; 
investigating the basic qualities of 
textiles and clothing, and evaluating 
new developments in textiles. In addi- 
tion, ti'ainees will be given opportunity 
to participate in the planning and 
preparation of magazine editorials, in 
staging photographs for illustrations, 
and in other aspects of the Institute's 
work that might prove useful in their 
careers, such as writing reports, an- 
swering correspondence, and becoming 
conversant with laws, trade practices, 
and accepted standards related to con- 
sumer's products. The training will be 
given by members of the Institute's 
technical staff, in its kitchens, laundries, 
and engineering and textile laboratories. 

Blues Have It 

"The blues have it for Spring," fore- 
casts Miss Helen Shelby, Extension 
clothing specialist at the University of 
Maryland, speaking in reference to 
Spring fashions, "but a wide variety of 
other colors will allow every woman to 
find her most becoming color." 

The exaggerated silhouette of Spring 
1948 will be replaced by figure flattery 
enhanced with distinctive detail. Shoul- 
der and hip lines will conform to natural 
lines. And yes, skirts will be shorter, 
the controversy settling at midcalf for 
general wear. 

You may have a choice between slim 
and full skirts (neither extreme) with 
the Junior Miss probably giving prefer- 
ence to the latter. Slim lines will be 
generally accepted for suits, and an easy 
fullness will characterize dresses and 
coats. There will be a continuation of 
hack interest as shown in pleats and 
loose panels, with back fullness starting 
lower this coming season, to give a 
smooth hip line. Some frocks will fea- 
ture high waistlines, suggestive of 

Necklines will be definitely different, 
with collars a must, all sizes from the 
narrow, rolled-high charmer to the cape- 
forming sleeve. Cuffs will also be im- 
portant. As special flattery for feminine 
charms, you will be wearing detachable 
lingerie glimpses, lace-frilled. Buttons 
will come into their own as trimming. 
Hip-emphasizing pockets will be plenti- 

Highlighting the fabric forecast, re- 
ports Miss Shelby, will be the iridescent 
effects once limited to silk but now to be 
found in a wide variety of fabrics in- 
cluding gingham, denim, chambray, 
shantung, and even tweeds and seer- 

And the over-all mood? "Be your 
most feminine self this Spring."

Mary Riley (Mrs. George Langford), B.S. 
1926, is pictured above. After graduating 
from the CoUeg of Home Economics in June 
1926, Mary was married to George Langford 
in Denver, Colorado, in September. They 
lived at Fort Collins while George was on 
the staff of the Colorado State College. From 
there they moved to Columbus, Ohio, where 
George received his doctor's degree in en- 
tomology. During this time Mary taught 
school for one year. 

The Langford's then returned to College 
Park, and Dr. Langford joined the Entomol- 
ogy staff as an Associate Professor and 
specialist in insect control. 

There are two Langford children — George, 
Jr., a freshman in high school, and Marilyn, 
a sophomore in the College of Home Eco- 
nomics. Marilyn, pictured above with her 
mother has won her share of honors. She 
was elected to the freshman honor society. 
Alpha Lambda Delta, which requires an 
average of 3.5. During her freshman year, 
Marilyn worked on the Diamondback, and 
during the summer was a counselor in the 
Girl Scout Camp at Thurmont, Maryland. 
She is a member of Kappa Alpha Theta. 

Shortly after coming to the university, the 
Langford's built a house in College Park. 
Through clever planning, Mary was able to 
include two small apartments quite separate 
from the family living space. These apart- 
ments have been a boon to graduate stu- 
dents in solving their living problems dur- 
ing the years of housing shortage in College 

Mary has been prominent in community 
activities since living in College Park. While 
her children were in the local school, she 
was active in the P.T.A., and is now Vice 
President of the Hyattsville High School 
P.T.A. She was a charier member and a 
past president of the university Campus 
Club, which has in its membership the 
wives of the members of the university 
faculty, the faculty women, and graduate 
students. Mary was also a charter member 
of the Prince Georges Hospital Guild, and 
worked hard in raising money for the hos- 
pital. The Progress Club, the women's club 
of College Park, has elected Mary to various 
offices including the presidency which she 
now holds. During the war there was much 
Red Cross Canteen work to be done, and 
here Mary also was a hard worker. In fact, 
it is well known in College Park that if you 
want something done well get Mrs. Lang- 
ford to do it. 

Mary's brother is Dr. R. H. Riley, Director 
of the State Department of Health for

|{. Lucien IJrun, D.D.S. 

THE person to whom the profession 
of dentistry looked to orjjanize the 
numerous activities incident to the Den- 
tal Centenary Celebration (1940) was 
B. Lucien Brun. The educational pro- 
gram, scientific presentations, historical 
portrayal and j)rofessional exhibits were 
acclaimed as a unique achievement 
which, as with all preat events, are pos- 
sible only because of sound cooiierative 
oijfanization under the direction of a 
master planner. 

To have been able to crowd into a 
busy professional life the many details 
concerned with that pieat effort was no 
new experience for Dr. Brun. The pro- 
fession knew that a time consuming job 
requiring mental alertness and physical 
stamina needed Dr. Brun and the later 
success of his several years planning 
culminating in a magnificent spectacle 
simply enhanced the profession's re- 
spect for one of its members. He had 
never failed them. When the American 
Dental Association awarded a gold 
medal to William Stewart Halsted, 
Surgeon-in-Chief of the Johns Hopkins 
Hospital, for his studies in neuro-region- 
al anesthesia it was Dr. Brun who was 
Chairman of activities for the presenta- 
tion dinner. Time and again he has 
served as toastmaster bringing to each 
occasion experience, knowledge and a 
sense of humor which insured success 
of the affair. 

A natural ability for a chosen field 
of endeavor is not always to be found 
but when a natural ability is combined 
with a sound educational background 
the resultant service to the public and 
profession is ideal. Following early 
years at Calvert Hall College and 
Loyola College, B. Lucien Brun matricu- 
lated as a medical student at the Col- 
lege of Physicians and Surgeons (Balti- 
more) and at the end of the freshman 
year transferred to dentistry, entering 
the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery 
from which he graduated in 1905, cum 
laude. By 1911 Dr. Brun had decided to 
pursue graduate studies preparatory to 
entering the field of Oral Diagnosis, 
Exodontia and Oral Surgery. For this 
puri)ose he studied at Saint Mary's and 
Trinity Hospitals (Milwaukee) and the 
(lei-man Hospital (Xew York). 

In 1912 with the late Clarence J. 
(Irieves (DDS), Dr. Brun was respon- 
sible for the inauguration and develop- 
ment of the Dental Department of the 
Johns Hopkins Hospital wherein he 
served as Head of the Oral Surgical 
Division and since 194fi as Chief of the 
Dental Department. During this same 
I)eriod he taught at the Baltimore Col- 
lege of Dental Surgery becoming Pro- 
fessor of Oral Surgery in 1917. He has 

been for years Chief of the Dental Staff 
of the Union Memorial Hospital (Balti- 
more) and in addition is consultant to 
several other Baltimore hospitals. If 
one is to evaluate Dr. Brun's contribu- 
tions to his profession and thru the pro- 
fession to the public welfare one out- 
standing issue comes to mind. Thru Dr. 
Brun's persistent efforts the doors of 
the operating rooms of the hospitals of 
Baltimore were opened to the dental 
profession so that today a patient in 
need of dental surgery requiring hos- 
pitalization is able to have a competent 
oral surgeon supply that service on a 
basis of recognized ability comparable 
to that accorded a patient thru the 
general surgeon. 

Dr. Brun's professional associates 
quickly sought him to sei-ve as Presi- 
dent of his State Association (two 
terms); as President of the National 
Alumni Association (University of 
Maryland, Dental); as President of the 
Maryland State Board of Dental Ex- 
aminers and as Vice President of the 
American Dental Association. Further 
acknowledgment has come to him in 
the form of honorary membership in 
many dental and professional societies 
both in the United States and foreign 

Two World Wars have occurred in 
Dr. Brun's life time. In the 1st he saw 
fit to leave his practice and his family, 
join with the Johns Hopkins Hospital 
Unit (No. 18) and go in 1917 to France 
as a First Lieutenant returning in 1919 
as a Major having seen service with the 
American and British Expeditionary 
Forces. In 1918 he was appointed "Chief 
Dental Consultant" Advanced Section, 
AEF. In the 2nd Word War, Dr. Brun 
was immediately selected as Chairman, 
"Military Affairs Committee" Third 
Service Command and became in 1942 
on appointment by Paul V. McNutt of 
the War Manpower Commission "Con- 
sultant" with Pi'ocurement and Assign- 
ment Service receiving in 1946 the Con- 
gressional Selective Service Medal. 

Thru all these varied efforts Dr. Brun 
has found the time and the desire to 
contribute to the literature of the pro- 
fession, an appended list indicating the 
extensiveness of his efforts. 

He likes very very much to go fishing 
in Canada with a small group of busi- 
ness and professional men who have 
been doing so for years, and some years 
ago undertook, and as we might have 
expected succeeded in learning to pilot 
a plane. The Chesapeake Bay. on the 
shore of which off the Gibson Island 
Road, Dr. Brun has a delightful resi- 
dence, offered him the opjiortunity to 
indulge his fancy for speed boats. In 
the winter, the Bruns, (Dr., Mrs. and a 
charming daughter) live on Madison 
Street in Baltimore, Another charming 
daughter, now married to a Xaval Of- 
ficer, has provided Dr. Brun with the 
title of "Grandpere." 

Besides these numerous personal 
"likes" those who know Dr. Brun al- 
ways think of the gallery of photo- 
graphs of noted people who have been 
his iiatients or with whom he has been 
associated in one capacity or another. 



They come from everywhere out of 
every phase of human endeavor. Booth 
Tarkington, Paderewski, Wm. H. Welch.

wife, Carole Lombard, Wallace Beery,

Carter Glass, Joseph Ames. They are 
a small section of the entire gallery. 
One particular hand drawing of interest 
is by the late Max Brodel, medical 
artist who made a three view portraiture 
of Dr. Brun. 

To the young professional man enter- 
ing practice Dr. Brun has ser\'ed di- 
rectly and indirectly as an example of 
the true and unselfish individual who 
makes the finest of professional public 

From Puerto Rico 

Recently the people of Puerto Rico 
inaugurated their first elected governor 
since the island became a territory of 
the United States. There are many diffi- 
cult problems that challenge the abili- 
ties of the new governor. Those of food, 
health, education and housing press for 
immediate action by the Insular Govern- 
ment. Graduates of the University of 
Maryland, especially those who have re- 
ceived degrees from the Schools of 
Medicine and Dentistry, will contribute 
widely and vitally to the various pro- 
grams now being administered for rais- 
ing the standards of living on the island. 

As of July 1947 there were 167 
licensed dentists in Puerto Rico to serve 
a population of 2,141.462. The ratio of 
1 dentist to 12,82.3 people contrasted to 
the ideal ratio of 1:1,000 furnishes 
dramatic proof of the great need for 
more dentists on the island. The fact 
that about 40 percent of the dentists 
practicing on the island are graduates 
of Maryland's School of Dentistry 
serN'es as a good illustration of the high 
esteem in which the University is held 
by the people of Puerto Rico. 

The first Puerto Rican graduate of 


the School of Dentistry was A. (larniei- 
of the Class of 1859. Conditions on the 
island up to the time of its coming" 
under the le^rinie of the United States 
were not conducive to proniotin^T the 
development of a profession quantita- 
tively or qualitatively. As a result, C. 
H. Daley '65 and F. Del Valle '98 were 
the only other Puerto Rican tjraduates 
of the first dental collefro in the world 
during the first sixty years of its ex- 
istence. In the next forty-nine years, 
the period from 1900 through 1948, 105 
Puerto Ricans received the D.D.S. de- 
gree from the School of Dentistry. 

The present student body of the 
School includes 20 residents of Puerto 
Rico, 4 freshmen, 4 sophomores, 10 
juniors and 2 seniors. The members of 
this group were admitted with excellent 
predental records and enjoy good stand- 
ing in their respective classes. The fol- 
lowing roster includes places of resi- 
dence, sources of predental education 
and other pertinent information.

Man With Courage 

If you call a certain telephone number 
in Towson, Md., and ask to speak to 
Dr. Donald Hunter, graduate of the 
Dental School, University of Maryland, 
you will, be able to do so. This is cer- 
tainly not unusual for most people, but 
Dr. Hunter was stricken with infantile 
paralysis in December, 1946 and spent 
twenty-two months in a hospital. It is 
a long road from the iron lung in the 
Children's Hospital Respirator Center 
to the hospital bed, the telephone and 
the television set in the Carter home on 
Burke Avenue, Towson. 

Dr. Hunter came home in October, 
1948, and he is so cheerful and so re- 
sourceful that it is difficult to realize he 
is almost helpless. He feels, however, 
that he is making slow but steady prog- 
ress. He spends the day on the bed 
and generally sleeps in the lung at 
night as he finds he rests better that 
way. His general health is good, and 
there is an improvement in his breath- 
ing and some muscles are returning to 

The dining room in the Carter home 
has been converted into a bedroom for 
him and from here it is easy to go out 
to the front porch in a wheel chair, 
which he does three or four times a 
w-eek. The muscles in his left leg have 
grown strong enough so that with a 
brace on the right leg he can walk to 
the front door and back with someone 
supporting him. This gives him an oc-

casional change of position. Two ver- 
tical posts with cross bars rise up from 
the bed. From the bars harifj; the sliiifi's 
which support his hands and arms and 
overcome the effect of gravity so that 
weak muscles have a chance to perform 
theii- functions. With his arms in these 
slinfj's he can open his rijjht hand and 
move the finpers. 

Dr. Hunter and a fiiend have worked 
out a device to ix'st his le^s. This is a 
set of footboards against which he can 
push to chanpe the position of his lejfs 
a little. On one of these boards rests 
the telephone. This consists of a bo.\ 
with a key which he can push with his 
toes to signal the oi)erator or to cut 
off a connection, much as one would lift, 
up and return a receiver. There is a 
headjjiece similar to that which operat- 
ors use, with an earphone and mouth- 
|)iece on a band which fits over his head. 
It is made of jilastic, weiphs only nine 
ounces, and can be put on and removed 
from his head by anyone who is around 

at the moment. Because of the tele- 
Iihone l)i-. Hunter's days are busy. Be- 
fore Christmas he sold K'eetinfr cards 
by soliciting business on the phone and 
now he is taking orders for peisonal 

Dr. Hunter does a lot of readiiifj. 
Books, magazines and newspapers are 
fastened to the crosspiece of the slin}? 
by means of clamjjs, at a suitable dis- 
tance from his eyes. In addition, he 
helps his two older sons, Scott, 9, and 
Cairoll, 8, with their lessons. Barry, 
almost 4, is too younp for school. 

Much entertainment is provided by 
the television set which was presented 
to him by the Baltimore City Dental 
Society and members of his Kiaduatinj; 
class at the University of Maryland 
Dental School. 

Yes, Dr. Hunter has come a lonjc way 
in two yeais and it could not have been 
done without the splendid cooperation 
and spirit he has always maintained 
with the hospital and his doctors. 


Students who feel that campus life 
is making them old before their time 
should have a few words with Louisi- 
ana student, Dr. E. V. Whitaker, Uni- 
versity of Maryland Medical School 
1912 who first enrolled at the old campus 
42 years ag'o. 

Dr. Whitaker, practiced medicine for 
.■5.'5 years before failing- health forced 
his retirement. 

Following pre-med at LSU, he at- 
tended schools in the United States 
and Europe including the University of 
Louisville, University of Maryland, 
(M. D. '12) advanced .study in Johns 
Hopkins, Oxford, Paris, London, Rome 
and the University of Zurich in Switzer- 

Caught in Genoa, Italy, in 19;]9 by 
war mobilization, he drove his car to 
Bordeaux, France, arriving the day war 
was declared. He waited there 15 days 
for passage home. 

Upon his return. Dr. Whitaker re- 
sumed his practice until stricken by 
coronary thrombosis, which restricted 
his activities to reading from his French 
library and playing chess at the YMCA. 

{.rowing tired of this routine, he en- 
rolled at LSU, taking giaduate courses 
in French. 

"The most noticeable change since 
former days is in the cjuality of the 
students, which has gieatly imiiroved," 
he said. 

His presence created quite a stir 
among teachers and students at first, 
hut they soon decided that, although he 
was older in years, his spirit was young 
enough for a freshman. 


Announcement is made of a dance to 
be held on April 22, from 9:00 to 1:00 
at the Fifth Regiment Armory in Balti- 
more. Harry James's Orchestra will 
l)rovi(ie the music for this occasion 
sponsored by the Women's Auxiliary 
Board of the University Hospital. The 
Dance will be cabaret style and alumni 
support is urged for this very worthy 


cause in which each alumnus should feel 
a direct interest. 

The Auxiliary Board, consisting of 
two hundred and twenty-two members, 
which serve on a volunteer basis com- 
pletely supports all free clinic work at 
the University Hospital. This Dance, 
under the Chairmanship of Mrs. Mervin 
G. Pierpont, serves as a major means of 
financial support for this project. The 
two Vice-Chairmen, recently named are 
Mrs. Paul Byerly and Mrs. Howard 

More will be heard in a future issue 
of this benefit dance. It is mentioned 
now to give you an opportunity to plan 
well in advance to be present and give 
your backing to the Women's Auxiliary 
Board of the University of Maryland 


Dr. J. S. Geen, Utica, Illinois, was 
chosen by the La Salle County (Illinois) 
Medical Society as its outstanding gen- 
eral practitioner. Dr. Geen, who gradu- 
ated from University of Maryland Med- 
ical School in 1896 and has been prac- 
ticing in Utica for more than fifty-two 
years. He is president of the board of 
directors of the La Salle County High- 
land Tuberculosis Sanatorium and re- 
cently observed his fiftieth wedding 
anniversary. Also member Illinois fifty

Dr. B. Olive Cole, pictured above. Acting- 
Dean of the School of Pharmacy of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland since the death in Sep- 
tember of Dr. A. G. DuMez, has achieved a 
unique distinction in being the first lady to 
become an Acting-Dean of a School of 
Pharmacy in the United States. Honors in 
the pharmaceutical field are not new to Dr. 
Cole, as she has hitherto been one of a very 
limited number of ladies to hold a full pro- 
fessorship in a school of pharmacy. 

Dr. Cole joined the faculty of the School 
of Pharmacy in 1920 as Associate Professor 
of Botany. Pharmacognosy and Vegetable 
Histology. Currently she is Full Professor 
of Economics and Pharmaceutical Law. 

Since its reorganization in 1926, Dr. Cole 
has served as Secretary of the Alumni As- 
sociation of the School of Pharmacy of th« 

Dr. Cole is also a graduate of the School 
of Law of the University of Maryland, and a 
member of the Maryland Bar. 

College of 


Kducational Policies Commission 

STUDENT participation in school 
jjovernnient is nothing now, as a 
yhince at any book which tieats of the 
teaching--learnin<>- situation will attest. 
Much student participation in jjovern- 
nient is confined to superficialities, the 
participants probably being' considered 
too immature to take part in the real 
business at hand. The University of 
Maryland, contrary to the foregoing- 
statement, has many outstanding in- 
stances of effective student participa- 
tion in school government. To this im- 
pressive list should be added one more 
organization, namely, the Educational 
Policies Commission of the College of 

Early in the school year 1947-1948, 
Dr. Harold Benjamin, Dean of the Col- 
lege of Education, organized the Edu- 
cational Policies Commission. The idea 
for having such an organization was 
conceived prior to World War II, but 
was not put into practice until the 
aforementioned date. The Educational 
Policies Commission is unique in that 
it is a student body that aids in the 
formulation of policy relative to the 
College of Education. The students and 
faculty are of the opinion that it has 
been a democratizing influence because 
of the fact that all of the parties con- 
cerned help in formulating policies that 
will eventually guide their actions. 

The Commission is composed of twelve 
people; one male and one female repre- 
sentative from each of the four classes, 
two graduate students, one foreign stu- 
dent representative and a chairman 
Selection of the members is made 
through recommendations by fellow 
students and faculty members. The 
basis of selection is not solely upon 
academic ability, but also upon those 
traits that would tend to result in an 
active group member. 

The primary purpose of the Policies 
Commission is to serve as a liaison 
agency between the student body and 
the faculty. Many students who would 
ordinarily have no way of making their 
valuable suggestions known, are thus 
provided with an outlet for such infor- 
mation. The suggestions of the students 
are brought to the attention of the 
Commission by directly contacting a 
commission member, or by using the 
suggestion box in the foyer of the Edu- 
cation Building. The suggestion is then 
brought before the Policies Commission, 
where a sub-committee is appointed to 
fully investigate the particulars of the 
case. The sub-committee in turn makes 
recommendations to the Commission, 
based upon the finding of their investi- 
gation. To date, the practice has been

and Continuation Studies. Dr. Kabat received the award to contain the names of outstanding

for the Commission to request a joint 
meeting with the faculty, at which time 
the commission presents its recommen- 
dations. The recommendations of the 
Commission having been adopted as 
policy, the policy is carried out through 
administrative channels. If further 
study is required, a committee com- 
prised of student and faculty members 
is appointed to pursue the investigation 
to an end. An important fact that 
should be brought to light is that not a 
single recommendation of the Commis- 
sion has been rejected. Some have been 
accepted in modified form, however, the 
basic point remained largely as pre- 
sented in the original suggestion. 

The problems with which the Edu- 
cational Policies Commission has con- 
cerned itself have varied from matters 
of little significance to those of im- 
portance. The student-teaching pro- 
cedure has been changed, as a case in 
point, so that the student-teacher and 
the pupil has benefited by the change. 
A procedure for acquainting freshmen 
with the intricacies of registration and 
campus life has proved effective in 
many ways and has given the "frosh" 
a feeling of "belonging-to." At present 
the Commission is endeavoring to make 
graduate research theses in education 
more accessible to the students, and to 
hold periodic convocations for the pur- 
pose of enhancing professional growth. 
These are but a very few of the ma- 
terial changes and improvements that 
have resulted through the cooperative 
effort of the Policies Commission and 
the College of Education Faculty. An 
advantage that the Commission has is 


that it has no confines within which it 
must operate, other than problems per- 
taining to the College of Education. 
The areas in which specific problems 
have fallen include, curriculum, instruc- 
tion, administration and school plant. 

The greatest benefits have been 
gained in the field of human relation- 
ships merely by following democratic 
principles. Better relationships between 
students and faculty members are ap- 
parent, with a resultant feeling of unity 
and solidarity of purpose. In instituting 
the Educational Policies Commission, 
faith was placed in the intelligence of 
the student, which is in accord with a 
basic tenet of democracy. The College 
of Education has provided for any 
change that might result by adopting 
an experimental attitude toward all 
problems. It is significant that pros- 
pective teachers, who will be entrusted 
with teaching democracy as a way of 
life to young children, are learning the 
functions of a democracy by practicing 

Annual Banquet 

The annual banquet of the college of 
education chapter of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation will be held Friday, May 6, 1949, 
in honor of the graduating class of 1949. 
At this time, an award will be presented 
to the outstanding man and woman in 
the senior class. Last year, this presen- 
tation was made to Marilyn Beissig and 
Harry Bonk. It has become a tradition 
in the College of Education. 

It is sincerely hoped that all "forty- 
iiiiieis" and alumni will do their utmost 
to attend this function, which promises 
to be the finest yet! 

New Editor 

Mrs. Jean Williams Bassett, Class of 
'4y, has been ai)|)ointed editor of the 
education chajjter's contributions to the 
alumni magazine, and she would like to 
take this opportunity to request that all 
alumni send any information retjardinjf 
en^aKements, marriages, births, in- 
terestinjj jobs, etc., to Dave Bri^ham, 
Collepe Park, Maryland, so that in the 
future we may be aware not only of the 
events occurring at the University, but 
also of the jjrogress being made by our 
former classmates. 


The University of Maryland gave two 
extension classes in Nursery School and 
Kindergarten Education at the Wilson 
Teachers College, Washington, D. C. On 
Monday evenings, Mrs. Laura Mac- 
Cartney held a class in Creative Ex- 
pression through Music for the nursery 
school and kindergarten. This included 
songs, rhythms and records for the chil- 
dren, ages two through six. 

On Thursday evenings, Mr. Herbert 
L. Rooney, Chief Psychiatric Social 
Worker, Prince George's Mental Health 
Clinic, had a class "The Child in Home 
and School." This was especially for 
nursery school and kindergarten teach- 
ers. The class considered the needs of 
the pre-school child as seen by a staff 
member of a mental health clinic. There 
was one hour of lecture and one hour 
of discussion on problems brought in 
by group members. Enrollment was 
limited to 25. 

Both classes met from 7:30 P. M. to 
!):80 P. M. and were two credit courses. 


The Foreign Study Office which co- 
ordinates and directs work done at the 
Foreign Study Centers by students 
registered in the Graduate School of the 
University of Maryland was organized 
within the Department of Foreign Lan- 
guages and Literatures in May, 1947. 
Two Centers, in Paris and Zurich, have 
been in operation since September, 1947. 
.\ third Center, in Basel, was opened in 
September, 1948. A Resident Dean is 
appointed for each Center, either from 
the staff of the University of Maryland 
or from one of the colleges or univer- 
sities participating in the Foreign 
Study program. 

The student planning to study abroad 
must take into consideration certain 
differences between the European and 
.\merican university systems. It is 
rarely possible to designate a European 
course as the exact counterpart of an 
American course. Even if the names of 
the courses are quite similar there are 
usually different prerequisites and there 
is a difference in the psychological and 
intellectual approach to the subject mat- 
ter. The Maryland program assists the 
student in evaluating and bridging these 
differences, but does not make out of the 
program abroad an American curricu- 

lum. Rather, the student is offered a 
Euiopean university schedule with ad- 
justments made for measuring the pro- 
gram in terms of American credits. 

Courses offered at the F^uropean uni- 
versities usually rotate in cycles of 
three to five semesters. It is impossible 
to announce specific courses before the 
publication of the university catalogue 
shortly before the opening of each 
semester. Therefore, the details of each 
student's program must be worked out 
at the beginning of each semester. 
Graduate work is offered in Paris, Basel 
and Zurich. 

The program provides Majors and 
Minors in 

Geography: General geography, Eco- 
nomic Geography. 

History (ancient, medieval, modern; 
American-European relations). 

Language and Linguistics: General 
Germanic Romance. 

Literature: Comparative French, Ger- 

Political Science: Government, Inter- 
national Relations. 

Psychology, Sociology. 

Minors only are offered in the fields 
of American, English, Italian, Spanish 
and Roman Literature; Theology, Phi- 
losophy, Education, Volkeskunde, Eco- 
nomics, History of Art and Musicology. 

The calendar of the Foreign Study 
Centers is fitted to the academic calen- 
dar of the European universities. The 
winter semester begins late in October 
or early November and ends in Febru- 
ary or March. The summer semester 
begins late in March or in April and 
ends about the middle of July. The 
Maryland program provides for a 
thirty-six week academic session. 

Before the European school year be- 
gins, the Maryland registrants partici- 
pate in an orientation period with re- 
quired language work (French in Paris, 
German in Basel and Zurich). When the 
university year opens, the student is 
enrolled in the faculty or school best 
suited to his preparation and interests. 
The orientation programs begin late in 
September. Registrants will be informed 
of exact dates.

Lt. Nathan L. Giles of Washington 
who studied enpfineering; at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland before he entered the 
Army in 1943 has only one gripe about 
the airlift. The weather is fog:g:y and

Templehof runway

"I've been here

the morning of 

July 1. He took off that night with his 

first load of flour and he has been taking 

off almost daily ever since. 

"No time to see anything," he said. 
"Some off-duty day I want to hitch a 
ride and come up to see this place." 

Veteran of two years' bomber squad- 
ron service on Guam, the 28-year-old 
pilot said he particularly wanted to see 
some of the bomb damage in Berlin. 

Lt. Giles is the son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Nathan B. Giles, 3210 Vista street, N.E., 
Washington. He was graduated from 
McKinley High School in 1938. 

Last Christmas Day Lieutenant Giles 
was scheduled to fly two round trips 
so he spent the few remaining hours of 
it putting in a call to his wife, in Austin, 
Tex. She is the daughter of Mr. and 
Mrs. Freeman Stricklin, 9809 Haverhill 
drive, Kensington, Md. The Giles met 
10 years ago in Calvary Baptist Church 
and were married in September, 1947. 

She is living in the house they rented 
at Bergstrom Field last summer. They 
were swimming at a pool near there 
June 25 when the operations officer came 
from the field to tell Lt. Giles to take 
a C-54 to Germany. Forty-eight hours 
later he was on his way. 

The grind of delivering groceries and 
taking back empty sacks was broken 
for Lt. Giles recently. Instead of sacks 
he got children — "seemed like hundreds 
of children," he said. They were 29 DP 
youngsters between 10 and 12 years old, 
and they all wanted to help him fly the

ELEVEN jcraduates of the Ajjricul 
tural Education Department of the 
university of Maryland who live neaib.\ 
honored their formei- Pi'ofessor and 
Head of the Department, Dr. H. F. Cot- 
t:!;man, with a dinner at "The Open 
Door" in VVa.shintrton. This affair re- 
juvenated a practice that was followed 
in an informal manner during the many 
years that Dr. Cotterman was in charfre 
of trainintr teachers of Vocational Aj^r- 
riculture. "The Open Door" was selected 
because it is operated by Mary Brown 
Riley, '27, a graduate of the College of 
Home Economics. 

Due to the nature of the affair, no 
formal program was presented. Instead 
the group spent the evening reminisc- 
ing about the fine times they had "in 
the good old days" and catching up on 
"tall stories." Those present were 
Harry M. McDonald, '20, State Super- 
visor of Vocational Agriculture; John 
\V. Magruder, '25, County Agent Leader 
of the Extension Service; Mylo S. 
Downey, '27, State Boys' Four-H 
Leader; C. W. (Sox) Seabold, '28, 
Teacher of Vocational Agriculture in 
Reisterstown High School and Vice- 
President for the Northeastern Region 
in the newly organized National Voca- 
tional Agriculture Teachers Associa- 
tion; Arthur B. Hamilton, '29, Associate 
Professor of Agricultural Economics; 
James R. Ward, '.SI, formerly Associate 
Professor of Agricultural Engineering 
at the University of Maryland and now 
farm machinery dealer at Gaithers- 
burg; Arthur M. Ahalt, '.'51, Professor

Marketing and Chief, Maryland State 
Department of Markets; W. Sherard 
Wilson, '.'52. Assistant State Boys' Club 
Leader; Dr. Albin 0. Kuhn, '38, Pro- 
fessor and Head of Agronomy; and

It was interesting to note that those 
present were evenly distributed through- 
out the years Dr. Cotterman was train- 
ing teachers of Agriculture. 

Henry C. Sherman 
Dr. Henry C. Sherman, a graduate of 
Maryland Agricultural College in 1892, 
has just written a new article entitled, 
"Looking Forward in Nutrition" which 
is being i)ublished by the McMillian 
Comj)any. The volume contains approxi- 
mately one hundred sixteen papers con- 
sisting of reprints of journal articles, 
addresses, and reviews on food and nu- 
trition. He has for a number of years 
been a leading figure in food chemistry 
and has diiected this work at Columbia 
University. He is also author of the 
fourth edition of "Food Products" an;!

Dr. Roger B. Corbell, pictured above. As- 
sociale Dean of Ihe College of Agriculture 
and Associate Director of Extension at the 
University of Maryland, served as chairman 
of one of the discussion sections in the Na- 
tional Conference on Rural Health, a two- 
day meeting held on February 4 and 5 at 
Chicago, Illinois. It is the fourth annual 
conference of this type. The section with 
which Dr. Corbett is concerned is entitled 
"Health Education — Individual and Com- 
munity Responsibility."

by the truly prophetic L. Parks Shipley, 
had to say about Kelley in his senior 

"Tom Kelley without doubt is one of 
the outstanding figures to be graduated 
from the university in recent years. As 
editor of the 1925 Reveille. Kelley did 
a memorable piece of work; and as a 
participant in numerous student activi- 
ties he always has thrown himself 
wholeheartedly behind any program 
that had for its objective the promotion 
of the best interests of his fellow class- 
mates and the university. Strong in 
heart and courage, a keen student, a 
sympathetic friend, an idealist and a 
leader, Tom has made for himself an 
unforgettab'e i)lace in campus history.

Here is what the W'unhitigtou Star 
had to say about him in connection with 
his councilship from the Third District 
of Montgomery County: 

"No other councilman will be more 
experienced in practical politics; none 
will be so well acquainted with the per- 
sonalities with whom they must deal at

has not been too closely identified with 
organization politics to disturb non-

Wizard Haines 

Colonel Mahlon N. Haines '9G, known 
to many as "The Shoe Wizard", re- 
ceived another party endorsement of his 
alumni efforts when he entertained more 
than seventy-five University graduates 
at his home in York, Pennsylvania. On 
December 11, he be{>:an at 6:00 A. M. 
personal preparation of a dinner which 
he himself served at 6:30 in the eve- 
ning. The dinner in honor of University 
of Maryland alumni from the Peimsyl- 
vania counties of York, Adams, and 
Franklin came almost entirely from 
Haines Farms throughout the country. 

The visitors were piven an opportuni- 
ty to review six scrapbooks of clippings 
about the host, to see the thousands of 
trophies and ribbons his horses have 
won, and to try on the head pear which 
desipnated him as honorary chief of 
three Indian tribes. 

Colonel Haines asked no othei- reward 
for this entertainment than support for 
the University of Maryland, its Presi- 
dent whom he jiraised hiphly, the Alum- 
ni Association, and "M.ARYLAXD" 
magazine. He pave credit for his life's 
accomplishments to his wife, his an- 
cestors, and the University of Maryland. 

Special puests were alumni President 
Arthur I. Bell and Parker Mitchell, a 
member of Haine's' class. Several solos 
were i)resented by Professor and Mrs. 
Harland Randall and they were accom- 
l)anie(i by Chailes Haslup of the Uni- 
versity Music I)e])artment. 

Invents Crusher 

Howard K. Hartman, World War II 
overseas veteran, 30G Todd Place, N.E., 
Washinpton, D. C, who is a freshman 
in Maryland's College of Agriculture, 
is proud of his World War I veteran 

Felix L. Hartman, the father, breaks 
up fluorescent light tubes for the Fed- 
eral Works Agency. 

He used to hurl them into a banel 
and run off to safety before they crashed 
into smithereens. When warned that 
this method was dangerous, he broke 
them under water in a sink, but got 
splashed aplenty. He tried to do the 
trick in a burlap bag — only to suffer 
occasional scratches from flying splin- 

Now Mr. Hartman is "breaking 'em" 
in safety and ease with a tube crusher 
he rigged up. 

And for his invention. Major General 
Philip B. Fleminp, Federal Works Ad- 
ministrator, pave him a cash award of 
$250. The award is the largest yet be- 
stowed upon an FWA employee for a 
suppestion or a design, to promote 
safety and efficiency. It was recom- 
mended by the Suggestions Committee, 
composed of executives of the FWA's 
constituent organizations, the Public 
Buildings Administration, the Public 
Roads Administration and the Bureau 
of Community Facilities. 

General Fleming said "the value of 
the tube crusher cannot be determined 
in dollars and cents." 

"We feel that it is human lives we 
are dealing with," he continued. "The 
loss of an eye, due to a flying fragment 
of glass, would be worth much more 
than anything we could give Mr. Hart- 
man for an award. The breaker elimi- 
nates all possibility of flying glass 
lodging in an employee's eye, and also 
withdraws the poisonous gases and 
powder which might otherwise be in- 
haled by the employee. 

"Due to Mr. Hartman's suggestion, 
W. E. Reynolds, Commissioner of the 
Public Buildings Administration, FWA, 
intends to have the tube breaker repro- 
duced and installed for use by the main- 
tenance men of all Federal buildings 
under the jurisdiction of the PBA in 
Washington and throughout the coun- 

The tube breaker is made of metal 
and is something like a covered trough. 
54 inches lonp, four feet deep and 12 
inches wide. Tonps are fastened on the 
inner side of the lid. The tubes are in- 
serted and broken into small pieces by 
the tonps when the lid is closed. A 
vacuum hose, attached to the compart- 
ment, draws off the poisonous pases and 
powder. It can junk 30 tubes a minute. 
Ferdinand Kaufholz, Jr., chief of the 
PB.A's Enpineerinp and Research Office, 
told Commissioner Reynolds the unit 
can be enlarged to break up to 500-watt 
incandescent bulbs as well as the 12 and 
48-inch fluorescent lipht tubes. It was 
Mr. Kaufholz who warned Mr. Hartman 
of the hazards and encouraped him to 
try to devise a safe procedure. .Approxi- 
mately 120.000 fluorescent tubes burn 
out yearly in Federal buildinps.

Conservation Award 

A young Maryland farmer, Howard 
B. Strong, Jr., of Cecilton (Cecil 
County), has been selected as "System- 
wide Conservation Champion for 1948" 
in the contest which is sponsored an- 
nually by the Baltimore and Ohio Rail- 

This announcement was made by the 
Maryland Farm Bureau in Baltimore 
where Strong was presented with a 
framed "certificate of achievement" by 
O. K. Quivey, Manager of Agricultural 
Development for the B & 0. In addi- 
tion, the new system wide champion will 
receive a 250-dollar order for whatever 
material or equipment he may choose 
to further the conservation program on 
his farm. 

The 28-year-old veteran, who served 
four months with the First Armored 
Division at Anzio beachhead, began 
farming scarcely more than a year ago. 
In November, because of the remarkable 
progress which has been made on his 
farm in the conservation of all natural 
resources, he was proclaimed "Mary- 
land's champion soil conservation 
farmer for 1948." As a result of this 
award, Strong entered as the Free 
State's representative in the systemwide 
conservation contest which is open to 
the winners of similar contests in nine 
states served by the railroad. 

Members of the judging committee 
for the 1948 systemwide contest were 
Dr. Hugh H. Bennett, Chief of the U. S. 
Soil Conservation Service; Wendell R. 
Tascher, Extension — SCS Conservation- 
ist of the U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture; and Mr. Quivey. 

The following points were emphasized 
in selecting the winner: good land use, 
establishment of soil and water conser- 
vation practices, maintenance of prac-

Chairman of the State Soil Conservatioii 
Committee, was informed of Maryland's 
victory in the B & O systemwide con- 
test. "The accomplishments and pro- 
gressive leadership of this young 
farmer," he stated, "help to emphasize 
further the advances which Maryland 
has made in its soil conservation pro- 
gram during li»48. The fact that Mr. 
Strong has been able to successfully in- 
corporate all of his farm into a complete 
program of soil conservation practices 
should provide an example and an in-

Six Maryland 4-irers were given na- 
tional honors at the 4-H Club Congress 
in Chicago and awarded $200 scholar- 
ships to help with their college educa- 
tions. They were: Barbara Long and 
Rose Anne Willison of Cumberland, 
Mary Louise Young and Ruth Ellen 
Ifert of Middletown; Roxie Lee Mont- 
gomery of Ijanisville, and Henry Hollo- 
way, Darlington. Another national win- 
ner, John Wysong of Forest Hills, re- 
ceived a $100 educational scholarship. 

Two other members of the Maryland 
delegation were named sectional win- 
ners and awarded the trip to the Club 
Congress with all expenses paid. They 
were Richard Holter, Jefferson, and 
William Holloway, Darlington. 

Twenty-nine tired, but happy, Mary- 
land youngsters got off the train from 
Chicago. While at the 4-H Club Con- 
gress they heard such noted speakers as 
Governor Luther W. Youngdahl, of 
Minnesota, Dr. Gerald Kennedy, Bishop 
of the Methodist Church of Portland, 
and Dr. John Hannah, President of 
Michigan State College, discuss the 
theme of this year's Congress, "Creat- 
ing Better Homes Today for a More 
Responsible Citizenship Tomorrow." 

Some of the outstanding entertain- 
ment provided for the delegates included 
Fred Waring and his Choral Group, who 
introduced a new 4-H song, Judy Ca- 
nova. Gene Autry, the Kraft Choral 
Society, a national preview of the new 
Walt Disney film "So Dear to My 
Heart," a trip to the International Live- 
stock Exposition, and a barbeque. 

This event is the crowning event of 
the 4-H year, and one toward which 
these boys and girls have worked for 
years. The 1600 delegates, leaders and 
guests who were privileged to attend 
regard it as the major highlight of their 
4-H careers. 

• May we call your attention to the BUCK SQUARE SPACE- 
SAVER milk bottles, which were originated and introduced by 
us eight years ago, the use of which has now become general 
throughout the country.' 

• Through the cooperation of other milk bottle manufacturers 
with us, this patented bottle has been made available to every 
member of the dairy industry without hindrance of any kind. 

• The many savings in crate and carton materials, storage and 
shipping space and weight, and most of all, the saving in re- 
frigerated space in dairies, stores and homes, are contributions 
which we are glad to have made to the dairy industry.

In soiithoiii M;iiyland many farmers 
use Campbell's (dolomitic) Lime because 
Its high magnesium content is especially 
adapted to local soil requirements. In the 
northern counties of Maryland, farmers 
prefer Campbell's (calcitici Lime because 
It IS high in calcium and low in mag- 
nesium. Bulk plants for Lime-Spreader 
Service are located at Gwynns Falls 
Quarry (Baltimore & Western Maryland 
Railway) and Texas. Maryland. 


If the walkways in your barn and 
stable are slippery, regular applications 
of Campbell's Skidless Barn "Snow" not 
only prevent slipping, but more, act as a 
sanitary agent and increase the availa- 
bility of plant-food and minerals when 
manure is spread on the fields. If your 
dealer cannot supply you with Camp-

Colonel Harvey L. Miller, Director of 
Publications and Head Boxing Coach at 
the University of Maryland, was the 
first Marine Reserve officer to qualify 
for retirement under the now law passed 
by the 80th Congress. 

Miller, 60, a veteran of both World 
Wars with previous service in Cuba, 
China, the Philippines, Nicaragua and 
Mexico, organized, recruited and com- 
manded Marine Reserve units from 1929 
to 1940 and was mobilized with the 
Fifth Reserve Battalion, which he com- 
manded, on 1 November 1940, i:5 months 
before Pearl Harbor. He returned from 
the Pacific and to the University of 
Maryland on 1 January 1946. 

His combined service, which began on 
the frigate Constellation in 1906, in the 
lowest enlisted grade at $9.00 per 
month, totals close to 40 years. His 
active duty totals close to 20 years. His 
first combat ship was the armored 

cruiser MARYLAND, commissioned in 

He was first commissioned in April 
of 1917 and was promoted to Captain 
in 1925, Major in 1930, Lieutenant 
Colonel in 1935 and Colonel on 1 Janu- 
ary 1942. 

He was the first Reservist to com- 
mand a Fleet Marine Force battalion 
and also the first Reservist to command 
a Fleet Marine Force regiment. 

Last year he received from Secretary 
Forrestal the Re.serve Special Commen- 
dation Medal, of which only 15 were 
issued, in recognition of continuous re- 
serve activities over the years. 

Miller was recently appointed to 
membership on the National Security 
Committee, Veterans of Foreign Wars. 

In a letter to Miller, General C. B. 
Gates, Commandant of the Marine 
Corps, wrote, "The occasion of your 
qualifying as the first Marine Corps Re- 
serve oflicer to be placed on the retired 
list under the Reserve Retirement Act 
is one which merits this attempt to ex- 
press to you my personal congratula- 
tions and appreciation in addition to 
other messages that will come your way. 

"For the nearly forty years you have 
been in the Naval Service yours has 
been a magnificent record of duty, de- 
votion and patriotism. To my own 
knowledge the Marine Corps service you 
have rendered has always been out- 
standing and of the most unselfish type. 
Many were the adversities you faced 
and overcame in the lean and growing 
years of the Marine Reserve. This long 
service and the reward of your govern- 
ment should serve as a fine example for 
all Marine Reservists to follow. 

"May your years of retirement be 
happy and fruitful. Your Commandant 
is grateful and sends heartiest con- 
gratulations to a real MARINE!" 

"I wish to take this opportunity to 
express to you my sincere appreciation 
for your long and valued service which 
will culminate by your being the first 
member of the Marine Corps Reserve to 
(lualify in all respects for transfer to 
the retired list under the provisions of 
the Reserve Retirement Act," wi-ote 
Major General William T. Clement, 
USMC, Director, Marine Corps Reserve, 
continuing, "It is fitting that this signal 
honor of being the first Marine to quali- 
fy should go to one who, for some forty 
years, has been affiliated with the Naval 
Service. I know that during those nearly 
two score years you have never been 
'inactive,' and I know, too. that you 
never will be as far as our Marine Corps 
is concerned. 

"Our close personal friendship has 
covered many years of your service, and 
it is one of my most cherished pos- 
sessions. It has insjiired me through the 
years, and now that you retire from 
'active duty,' my sincere wish goes with 
you for many years of good health and 
happiness in the future."

The Maryland Germans 

THE story of the Maryland Germans 
from the timid beginnings of Ger- 
man immigration into the Calvert Colony 
to the present day is told in Dieter Cunz's 
new book, THE MARYLAND GER- 
MANS. The book was just published by 
Princeton University Press. Publication 
follows seven years of research. 

"The story of the peopling of America 
has not been written. We do not under- 
stand ourselves." So Frederick Jackson 
Turner challenged his fellow historians. 
It is true that there are gaps in the 
story of American immigration; the 
Middle Atlantic states have been re- 
ferred to as "the forgotten region." 

This is the first comprehensive his- 
tory of the German immigration to a 
state of the Middle Atlantic region 
which shows the typical American jux- 
taposition of Anglo-Saxon and Conti- 
nental European immigrants. The book 
opens with the beginnings of German 
immigration to the Calvert Colony 
around 1650 and traces the events to 
the present time, when the "last Ger- 
man-American generation" is being in- 
tegrated into the American population. 

Here are the pious Amish and the 
nineteenth century agnostic, the radical 
city laborer and the conservative West- 
ern Maryland farmer, the wealthy 
Bremen merchant and the poor steerage- 
class immigrant. They formed two chief 
settlements: the rural groups in the 
Western counties where they became 
acclimated before the middle of the 
nineteenth century, and the urban 
groups in and around the city of Balti- 
more, where for many decades they re- 
tired into a "Little Germany" isolation. 
The main interest of the author centers 
around the problem of their Americani- 
zation: when, how, and under what cir- 
cumstances did the Maryland Germans 
throw off their past, and how fast and 

\ 37 I- 

how thoroughly did they become Amer- 
icans ? 

A "case history" of American immi- 
gration, the story of a special group 
under special circumstances. The Mnry- 
laiid Germans has broad conclusions and 
implications for immigration history in 

Dieter Cunz, Associate Professor of 
German at the University of Maryland, 
has written numerous articles in the 
field of American immigration history.

Nursing's Diamond Jubilee 
By Virginia C. Conley 

DURING tho year 1948, the nurses 
of the United States celebrated 
their Diamond Jubilee of Nursinp. 

Seventy-five years afjo, September 1, 
187."{, Linda Richards received her cer- 
tificate from the New England Hospital 
for Women and Children, which caused 
her to be recognized as America's first 
professional nurse. Since that time, 
rapid strides have been made in both 
nursing service and nursing education. 
Today, due to the efforts of our nursing 
oiganizations, we have come to be 
known as the "best nursed country in 
the world." 

State Associations, Schools of Nurs- 
ing and Alumnae groups over the entire 
country were asked by the American 
Nurses' Association to plan a program 
to commemorate this occasion. The 
week of November 14-20 was set aside 
as "Nursing Progress Week"; and No- 
vember 16 was known as "Linda Rich- 
ards Day." A Linda Richards Banquet 
was held at New York's Waldorf As- 
toria Hotel on November 16 with many 
prominent figures attending. In connec- 
tion with the Banquet the American 
Nurses' Association sponsored a dis- 
play of nursing caps of the oldest 
schools of nursing in e%'ery state. The 
Nightingale cap of the University of 
Maryland School of Nursing was among 
those on display. 

The Maryland State Nurses' Associa- 
tion held their Annual Meeting and de- 
voted a portion of their program to the 
celebration of the Diamond Jubilee. The 

general theme of the meeting was "The 
Responsibility of Professional Nursing 
Today." At a luncheon meeting. Miss 
Pearl Mclver, Chief of the Office of 
Public Health Nursing of the U. S. 
Public Health Service, and now Presi- 
dent of the American Nurses' Associa- 
tion, spoke on "Nursing Responsibilities 
Today." At the afternoon meeting Miss 
Anna D. Wolfe, Director, School of 
Nursing and Nursing Services of the 
Johns Hopkins Hospital, gave a report 
on the Study made by Esther Lucille 
Brown, Ph.D. — Nursing for the Future. 
After the adjournment of the meetings 
the President's Tea was held at which 
time nurses from the various hospitals 
in the state of Maryland modeled copies 
of the early uniforms. 

Dr. L. Kathryn Dice, Chief Psycholo- 
gist, Mental Hygiene Clinic, University 
Hospital, spoke to the Maryland State 
League of Nursing Education on "De- 
veloping Desirable Attitudes in Nurses." 
The Maryland State Organization for

their speaker Dr. James E. Birren,

The University of Maryland School 
of Nursing in cooperation with the 
Nurses' Alumnae Association sponsored 
an exhibit of the School of Nursing. 
Through the generosity of Hochschild, 
Kohn and Company Department Store 
the display was shown in a window of 
that store. An effort was made to pre- 
sent a now and then picture of the 
School from the date of its founding in 
1889 up to the present time. Copies of 
old caps and uniforms, both student and 
graduate, highlighted the exhibit. 

The aim of this celebration has been 
to focus public attention on the role of 
the nurse and of nursing in the health 
of the country. It is also hoped that it 
has created and stimulated interest in

Carl E. Hartbower, of 807 Xenia Si., SE, Washinglon, has accepted a commission as 
Ensign, Civil Engineer Corps, USNR, in ceremonies held recently at the Naval Reserve Train- 
ing Center, Naval Gun Factory, Washington, D. C. 

Capt. E. B. Keating, CEC, USN, District Civil Engineer, Potomac River Naval Command, 
is shown congratulating Ensign Hartbower. Looking on are Lt. Comdr. Hugh E. Hagerty and 
Comdr. George A. Nelson, both Civil Engineer Reserve ofticers. 

While employed as a civilian at the Naval Research Laboratory after his discharge, 
Hartbower attended the "University of Maryland" for studies in Advanced Machine Design, 
Advanced Physical Metallurgy, Applied Elasticity and Engineering Properties of Metal and 

A graduate of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, he received a BS in Mechanical Engineer- 
ing in 1943. Before entering the Naval service on May 25, 1945, Hartbower was employed for 
27 months as a welding engineer at the Naval Gun Factory. He was then transferred to the 
Naval Research Laboratory, Bellevue, as an apprentice seaman in the inactive Naval Reserve. 
Two months later, he was called to active duty and promoted to Chief Petty Officer. He was 
honorably discharged on July 1, 1947. 

Hartbower reenlisted in the Volunteer Naval Reserve, Potomac River Naval Command on 
February 16, 1948, as Chief Specialist in welding. He later became a member of the Organ- 
ized Naval Reserve Construction Battalion when it was organized last spring as part of the 
Naval Reserve training program at the Potomac River Naval Command. 

Ensign Hartbower is married. The Hartbowers have three children: Carl, age 5; Annette, 
age 2; Daphne, age 1 month. 

Hartbower, 27, is presently employed as metallurgist in the Welding Section, Naval Re- 
search Laboratory, Bellevue, D. C where he conducts research on the effects of metallic-arc 
welding on metals used in Naval construction. 


The University of Maryland is in- 
cluded in the Du Pont Company award 
of seventy-seven post-graduate and 
post-doctoral fellowships to forty-seven 
universities throughout the country for 
the 1949-50 academic year. 

This is a continuation of the com- 
pany's thirty-year old plan to encourage 
graduate research in the fields of chem- 
istry, physics, metallurgy and engineer- 

The company said it has authorized 
the expenditure of $226,000 for the 
1949-50 awards. 

Adopted in 1918, the fellowship plan 
has been maintained with but one inter- 
ruption ever since. Its purpose is to 
provide support for the advanced train- 
ing of students in chemistry and other 
branches of science. It is ho])cd that 
the plan will continue to help maintain 
the flow of technically trained men and 
women who will go into teaching and 
research work at the universities and 
into technical positions in industry. 

This year's fellowship plan is little 
changed from that of 1948-49. Each 

post-graduate fellowship provides $1,200 
for a single person or $1,800 for a mar- 
ried person, together with an award of 
$1,000 to the university. Each post- 
doctoral fellowship provides $3,000 for 
the recipient and is accompanied by a 
grant of $1,500 to the university. 

The selection of candidates for the 
fellowships and the choice of problems 
on which they are to work are, as in the 
past, left to the universities. The in- 
dividual is under no obligation with re- 
spect to employment after he completes 
his work under the fellowship. 

In this year's program forty-five of 
the company's post-graduate fellow- 
ships are in chemistry, four in physics, 
fifteen in chemical engineering, five in 
mechanical engineering and two in 
metallurgy. The plan also provides for 
six post-doctoral fellowships in chem- 
istry. Awards in the post-doctoral field 
are designed to serve as an incentive to 
those who would prefer to remain in 
academic work and who would be quali- 
fied for staff positions on graduate

21 December 1918 

Dear Colonel Miller: 

Many thanks for the copy of "MARY- 
LAND" which you so kindly sent me. I 
gave one to the President and he en- 
joyed the editorial very much. He directs 
me to thank you for your thought ful- 
ness in sending it. 

Harry H. Vaughan 
Major General, U S Army (Res) 
Military Aide to the President. 
Colonel Harvey L. Miller, 
Director of Publications, 
University of Maryland, 
College Park, Md. 

From Raymond V. Leighty '38 Agri- 
culture, writes to say, "I know you have 
received plenty of praise on "MARY- 
LAND" magazine. I even read an 
article printed in it, reprinted in the 
"Journal of the Soil Conservation So- 
ciety of America," (Dr. Baker's) and 
was glad to see the accompanying cred- 
it to the magazine. Your article on the 
conservation job done in Frederick 
County was well done and quite com- 
plete in your recent issue, and I'm al- 
ways glad to get a full page spread of 
i the present campus. W^hile I visited 
, Maryland just two years ago, changes 
! have been made since. I'm glad to see 
' that we are about to get a new stadium. 
Now all needed there is a new little 
theater (which will come, I expect, in 
the dim future). I'd like to add my 
praises to those of others on an excel- 
lent magazine which is worth the money 
even if it wasn't an alumni magazine, 
which it very much is."

Dr. J. J. Davis 

Di-. J. J. Davis an 1891 graduate of 
the Medical School died at Duke Hos- 
pital on January 10. A resident of 
Smyrna, North Carolina. He wrote in 
late December of his life in the modest 
manner of a jjrreat man. Di'. Davis said, 
"I married in 1892 and the only claim 
to fame, if I have any, is the fact that 
I raised and educated a family of twelve 
children — eiK:ht boys and four girls. My 
oldest son is now President of the 
American Hospital Association, my next 
is curator of the N. C. State Museum in 
Raleigh. Two went through the Naval 
Academy and are now Captains, the 
othei's are doing well in their chosen 
line. After fifty years of general prac- 
tice, I often wonder how many of the 
old class are still in harness. If I have 
not brought honor to my Alma Mater, 
I hope I have not disgraced it."

For more than thirty years Dr. 
Maldeis aided in the investigation of 
virtually every homicide case that was 
brought to trial in the Criminal Court, 
and performed thousands of autopsies 
and post-mortem examinations. 

His many students well remember his 
excellent lectures and demonstrations 
drawn from his wide experience. In 
1919 he commented upon a mould in 
bacteriological plate cultures that was 
ai)parently destroying nearby colonies 
of pyogenic cocci. The mould was later 
found to be penicillium notatum by

John B. Voris 

Military funeral services were held 
in Arlington National Cemetery for 
Corporal John B. Voris, son of Mr. and 
Mrs. Bruce H. Voris, of Laurel, who was 
killed in action on November 17, 1944. 

Soon after Pearl Harbor John en- 
listed. One year later he left for over- 
seas duty, and after serving in North 
Africa and Sicily was sent to England 
to prepare for D-Day in which he par- 
ticipated. In France he suffered attacks 
of malaria and was hospitalized in Eng- 
land before returning to the continent 
where he followed his armed division 
into Belgium and Holland and Germany, 
where he was killed in action. 

A graduate of the University of 
Maryland, John took post graduate 
work at Johns Hopkins University, and 
was a chemist at Crosse & Blackwell in 
Baltimore at the time of his enlistment. 

In the homes of many of his friends 
can be found a small book entitled 
"Civilian In Arms," which he wrote and 
which he and his sister, Dorothy Anglin, 
had on the press when the attack oc- 
curred on Pearl Harbor. A few months 
l)efore hi.s death, Harper's Magazine 
published a condensation of a 53-page 
letter written l)y John on scraps of 
paper somewhere in Germany, attacking 
an article that he had read in an old 
issue of Harper's which he had come 
across. These are but small evidence of 
the profound thinking which John did. 

In addition to his parents and sister 
Dorothy, he also leaves surviving a 
brother, Calvin, and two other sisters, 
Lucy and Anna, both of Laurel.

assignment in any college football setup,"

"However, he has done such a fine job for 
us that he is due this promotion and in the 
reorganization of our coaching staff I am 
moving him up."

"As the result of a national poll oi college 
football Trainers, it is my privilege to an- 
nounce to you that Duke Wyre, Trainer al 
Maryland, received more votes than any 
Trainer in the East, and was second only to 
Jack Williamson of California in the total 
votes. This is a great tribute to Duke Wyre 
as he was chosen by his fellow trainers over 
such outstanding men as Jim Hunt of Michi- 
gan and Carl Erickson of Northwestern." 
writes John E. Noonan, Secretary American 
Football Trainers Ass'n, Harvard University. 

"In making the runnerup choice, the 
voters, all Head Trainers at well known 
schools, took into consideration not only 
Duke Wyre's proficiency at his profession, 
but also his outstanding organizational work 
in creating an association of conference 
Trainers. This organization has already 
raised the standard of the Training profes- 
sion in the Southern Conference," Mr. 
Noonan concludes. 

Trainer Wyre is picture above.

Drugs and medicines constitute the chief stock in trade 
of every successful drug store. It is much better to 
establish the drug store as a health center than as a source 
of supply for anything and everything. There is an 
occasional store that fills few prescriptions and still makes 
money, but there is no store anywhere that enjoys a 
good prescription business that does not make money. 
It is therefore logical that druggists make every effort to 
get all the prescription business there is to be had. 
Along with competent professional service, high quality 
prescription merchandise should be featured. The markets

It's robbery for a boy to accept an ath-

turned in such outstanding performances 
during the past two years that he is recog- 
nized as an all-time great for the Black and 
Gold. Earlier last fall he had been picked on 
the All-Maryland team by a unanimous vote.

I'orps (U). \ a. Tfth :>1 


Wj Maiyliuul haskothall team came 
alive in the late moments of its South- 
ern conferenc-e debut at Ritchie coli- 
seum, defeating a stubborn but mediocre 
V.r.I. .U'int, (;o-5i. 

A capacity crowd 
of 4,000 watched 
the two teams see- 
saw the lead back 
and forth 1 1 times. 
Charlie Mack, an 
angular (i-fuot .'>- 
inch GI freshman, 
and the veteran 
S p e n c e Wright 
steadied the Old 
Liners in theii' bad 
moments. Mack, a 
20-year-old Balti- 
more boy, contrib- 
uted 18 points to- 
ward the Terrapins' 
first conference 
contest, while 
Wrigrht piled 15 points through the Vir- 
ginia Poly hoops. 

In the first period the lead changed 
hands seven times and twice the Gob- 
blers pulled away to five-point advan- 
tages. When the rough ball game finally 
reached the halftime, V.P.I, was leading 

Ronnie Siegrist, a second-string for- 
ward, plummeted the Terps back into 
the lead at the 9^ minute mark only 
to see the Gobblers come rushing back 
to take their last lead on a foul toss 
and a goal. From there on in the Old 
Liners controlled the ball and were mov- 
ing at will when the final whistle blew. 

Richmond 54, Terps 45 

University of Richmond won a handy 
54-45 victory over the Terps at Ritchie 

Coach Flucie Stewart sent his Old 
Liners into the contest five at a time but 
the visiting Spiders soon overcame an 
early Maryland lead and pulled away to 
a 28-24 halftime margin. 

The game was rough and the 2,500 
fans watched whistle-tooters Dallas 
Shirley and Curly White give three 
Richmond players and one Marylander 
the heave-ho. A total of 27 penalties 
were assessed the visitors while the 
Terps fouled 18 times. 

In a preliminary, the Maryland Frosh 
took the measure of Quarters K, 53-37, 
with Dick Koffenberger scoring 12 
points for the winners. 

Cavaliers 53, Terps 47 

Virginia came to College Park and 
walked off with a 53-47 victory over 

The Terps made it a ball game only in 
the last five minutes. 

Trailing by 15 points, Bernie Smith 
and fiery little Eddie Crescenze led a 
belated rally that brought Maryland 
within four points, 49-45. 

For most of the game the Terps were 
outplayed all around. In the end, Cres- 
cenze and Smith led in scoring with nine 
points each. 

George Raiday's Maryland frosh 
look the prelimiiiai'y, turning back 
lUillis I'rep, Ii9-."i2, aftei- accunuilating a 
22-11 halftime advantage. Herb Mac 
Donald, Bill Fox and Dick Kutrenberger 
led the yeailings. 

Terp.s 7 J, Clemstm 50 

Maiyland's courtmen held (^lemson to 
a pair of foul shots in the first nine 
minutes and rolled to a 74-50 triumph 
over the Tigers in Ritchie Coliseum. 

The Terps played heads up ball most 
all the way and hit their shots with re- 
markable consistency. 

Maryland's five starters played no 
favorites in the scoring column of Mary- 
land's first 14 field goals, four players 
each had three and the other had two. 

The Tigers came out with nine 
straight points in the second half and 
narrowed the margin to 39-30. The 
teams traded field goals with Clemson 
still dangerous, but at this point the 
Terps pulled ahead again to stay. 

Johnny Edwards, Maryland's leading 
scorer of last year, snapped out of his 
slump with a lO-point performance and 
with Spcnce Wright, Bernie Smith, 
Charlie Mack and Bob Murray gave 
Maiyland a well-iounded attack before 
they tired. Smith scored 12 of his l.'i 
points in the first half. 

Coach Stewart used his entire squad 
with Ron Siegrist the best performer 
among the reserves. 

The Maryland freshmen drubbed 
Eastern High School, 46-34 in a pre- 
liminary game. Dick Koffenberger and 
Andy MacDonald paced the Baby Terps 
with 12 points apiece. 

N. Carolina 55; Maryland 47 

North Carolina defeated Maryland, 
55-47, in a Southern conference battle. 

The Terps made a game out of it all 
the way. They trailed by only two 
points at 26-24 at the half. 

Smith sank a long set to give Mary- 
land a 2-0 lead 45 seconds after the 
game opened. Carolina didn't take the 
lead until four minutes later when 
Kappler's basket put the Phants on 
top, 6-5. 

Carolina was ahead by 16-10 after 10 
minutes, but the Terps finished fast in 
the first half to close the gap. Then 
Maryland tied the score twice in the 
early stages of the second half, once at 
28-28 and again at 29-29. 

But then the Tarheels turned on the 
steam to win going away. 

Davidson 52; Terps 49 

Davidson college defeated Maryland, 

A couple of unheralded substitutes — 
Johnny Richards and Ed Hopper- 
helped the Davidson cause with three 
baskets apiece in the vital second half. 

Virginia 79; Terps 43 

Maryland's hoopsters were unable to 
cope with Virginia's Joe Noertker as 
the sharp shooting Cavalier center 
pitched in 30 points to spark Virginia to 
a 79-43 triumph over the Terps. 

Bob Murray, lanky pivot man, was 
Maryland's leading point producer with 
11 markers.

HoyaK 5.3; Terps 51 

(ii'ortjftown and Maryland were tied 
51-all with a minute and a half to play 
in their intra-city clash at the Armory 
when the Hoyas took time out. 

A few seconds later the Hoyas had 
the ball on a rebound. They dribbled, 
passed, froze the ball. Then George- 
town's Corley shot a basket. Immedi- 
ately the final jfuii barked and that was 
that, GeorKt'town 5.3, Maryland 51. 

Nobody seemed to remember much 
about the pame except Corley's shot, 
his seventh dead-eye field goal of the 
night, incidentally, with four made in 
a row. It was point for point most of 
the way with Maryland holding the 
biggest lead at 7 points. Mazziotta con- 
tributed 14 points and some excellent 
backboard play for the Hoyas. Corley 
made 17 and Murray, 13, and Seigrist, 
12 for the Terps. 

Maryland's freshman coach, George 
Barclay, never beaten in his head coach- 
ing career (freshman basketball and 
hockey at Dartmouth and, at Maryland, 
freshman basketball ) watched his fresh- 
men upset the Georgetown frosh, 56-45, 
in a preliminary. "When we were 12 
points ahead with 10 seconds to go I 
knew we had it," Barclay was reported 
to have said. 

I'enn 81 ; Terps 67 

A floor record was bettered and an- 
other equaled as the University of Penn- 
sylvania's surprising basketball team 
spurted from a 30-19 rut to an 81-67 
victory over the University of Maryland 
at Philadelphia's Palestra. 

In points, the 148 amassed by both 
teams surpassed the 134 Penn game 
floor mark created in 1947 with La- 
fayette as an opponent and equaled the 
same year with the co-operation of 

By depositing 13 baskets and four 
fouls, Penn's marksman Herb Lyon 
equaled the Red and Blue individual 
home record of 30 points he established 
a year ago against Gettysburg. Lyon 
barely missed on four opportunities to 
better his achievement in the closing 

Maryland gave another good account 
of itself but the hard-luck Terps wound 
up on the short end again. 

With Johnny E^dwards and Spence 
Wright of the first team still ailing. 
Coach Flucie Stewart started his new 
combination of freshmen and sopho- 
mores and at the half Maryland led, 

The Terp youngsters handled them- 
selves like veterans and in deliberate 
style remained ahead of the Quakers 
until five minutes of the second half 
had passed. 

Again the Maryland scoring was di- 
vided with five players in the double 
figures. Bernie Smith had 14, Ron Sie- 
grist 13, Bob Murray, Charley Mack and 
Lee Brawley 10. 

Loyola 77; Terps 75 

Loyola halted a last-minute challenge 
by Maryland to score a 77-75 basket- 
ball victory in Baltimore. 

The Terps appeared to be beaten with 
less than five minutes left but they 
rallied from a five-point deficit in the

final two minutes and goals by Brawley 
and Wright all but spilled the hosts in 
the fading seconds. 

Wright's last two-pointer for Mary- 
land came with 50 seconds left. Loyola 
grabbed the ball and successfuly froze 
the leather. 

Navy 52; Terps 46 

Navy changed tactics in midstream 
to defeat Maryland, 52-46, in a closely 
played basketball game at Annapolis. 

The lead changed hands six times in 
a hectic first half with Navy leading at 
the intermission, 25-24. The Middies 
used an assortment of set plays to keep 
them in the game against Maryland's 
smooth rebound work. 

But in the second half, Navy adopted 
a fast break attack and built up a nine- 
point lead in eight minutes. The Mid- 
dies fought for the rebounds and moved 
downfloor so fast the Terps were con- 
tinually overrunning themselves. 

Maryland eventually regained its 
composure, however, and climbed to 
within three points of Navy in the clos- 
ing minutes. Maryland's Frank Arms- 
worthy sank one to bring the score up to 
48-45 with about two minutes remain- 
ing. But Lawrence and Williams quickly 
tallied for Navy and deft ball handling 
by the Middies held the Terps to one 
point for the remainder of the game. 

G. W. 66; Terps 54 

George Washington defeated Mary- 
land, 65-54. 

The Terps made a real battle of it all 
the way and it was only in the late mo- 
ments of the foul-riddled contest that 
the Colonials were able to pull away to 
a safe lead. 

George Washington exploded to an 
early 15-point lead midway in the first 
half, but Maryland managed to whittle 
it down to a 30-32 halftime score and 
then reduced the Colonial lead to 4 
points throughout the major portion of 
the second period. 

Ronnie Seigrist, the lanky Maryland 
forward, was the night's second high 

-(56 1- 

individual scorer with 13 points. Seigrist 
hit five times from the floor and three 
times from the foul line. 

Maryland gained some consolation in 
the fact that the Old Line frosh team 
won their seventh straight victory, de- 
feating the Colonial yearlings, 48-44, in 
the preliminary contest. 

.Maryland-Miami Split 

Miami came from behind to defeat 
Maryland, 58 to 48, before 1,581 fans 
at Coral Gables. 

The Hurricanes, after trailing by six 
points at halftime, piled up a total of 36 
points to walk away with the game. 

The victory gave them a draw in the 
two-game series. Maryland squeezed 
out a 43-42 victory. 

Terps 66; W. & L. 60 

Maryland caught fire in the second 
half to overtake Washington and Lee, 

The Terps, behind six points at the 
end of the first half, rallied behind the 
accurate shooting of Wright and Lee 

On hand to view the game were the 
two Russian fliers, Pirogov and Barsov, 
touring V'irginia. 

For 12 minutes, the lead see-sawed 
back and forth, but the Generals finally 
took a six-point lead. The margin held 
through the first half, which ended 40- 
36 for Washington and Lee. 

With 12 minutes remaining. Wright, 
Brawley and Frank Amisworthy, of 
Maryland, pushed in four baskets in a 
row to give the Terps a lead which they 
never lost. i 

Cincinnati 70; Terps 33 

University of Cincinnati took a 70-33 
victory from Maryland before less than 
1,000 spectators at Cincinnati. 

Maryland, handicapped by the absence 
of two first stringers, made a fight of 
it in the first half and trailed by only 
28-22 at the intermission. The lead 
changed hands 11 times during the first 
20 minutes. 

Terps 53; V. M. I. 45 

Lee Brawley, former member of the 
Navy Olympic basketball team, pumped 
22 points through the loop to lead the 
University of Maryland to a 53-45 victo- 
ry over Virginia Military Institute in a 
Southern conference basketball game. 

Maryland moved into a lead which it 
never relinquished after nine and one- 
half minutes of play. At one time they 
had a 19-point margin, but a Kaydet 
off'ensive in the last four minutes of 
play cut down the score. 

The Terps continued their mastery in 
the second half and it was not until the 
final minutes of play when V.M.I, shots 
began connecting for scores that the 
losers became any sort of a threat. 

Terps 79; Gamecocks 49 

Maryland set a new College Park 
scoring i-ecord with a 79-49 rout of the 
University of South Carolina. 

It was the fifth Southern Conference 
win for the Terps. Lee Brawley, tall 
Terp from Arizona, led the Marylanders 
with 25 points and was benched with 
5 minutes remaining. For the visitors. 

Henry Martin was hij^h with 14. 

The Carolinians first hit for a fioKl 
troal after 7 minutes and 45 seeomls of 
the first half. The Old Liners already 
had 1.5 points by that time. 

Maryland led .S;{-22 at the half. 

The Maryland Frosh won theii- ninth 
straight jrame by defeating Bullis Prep, 
52-47. Dick Kotfenberfier paced the 
Terps with 29 points. 

Tarheels 66; Terps 52 
North Carolina defeated Maryland 

The Tcrrai)ins made a great f>anie of 
it in the first half but wilted badly in 
the second 20-minute semester to allow 
the Tarheels to win noinj;- away. 

Maryland's coach Flucie Stewart had 
based his hopes of an upset on Brawley, 
who has been sensational in the Terps' 
last two appearances but, before he was 
expelled via the five-foul route at 14.50 
of the second half, the Old Line scoring 
star had registered only eight points. 
Hoyas 56; Terps 52 

Georgetown eked out its second close 
decision over Maryland, 56-52. 

The surprising Old Liners gave 
Georgetown all they bargained for and 
for a time it appeared the Terrapins 
might upset the favored Hilltoppers. In 
fact, the Terps held five leads at various 
times in the torrid contest and at one 
time moved away to a six-point edge. 

Lee Brawley, the Terps' sensational 
scoring star, was the game's high in- 
dividual scorer with 19 points. 

The lead shifted a half dozen times in 
the first half, but the Hoyas managed to 
pull away^ to a 29-25 advantage at the 
half time. Then the Terps had knotted 
the count at 31-all. The lead shifted five 
more times before the Hoyas finally 
went in front, 50-48, at the 13:50 mark. 
From there on to the wire the Hoyas 
held stubbornly to their preciously 
small lead. 

Terps 57; S. C. 56 

Six quick points by Charlie Mack set 
up Maryland's 57-56 Southern Confer- 
ence victory over South Carolina. 

Thirteen points were scored in the 
last hectic minutes. 

Mack swished in two field goals to tie 
the score at 52-52. Johnny Edwards 
sank a technical foul shot and added an- 
other free throw to put the Terps two 
lioints ahead. 

Mack slipped one in from under the 
basket to make it 56-54 Maryland. 

Frank Armsworthy got 18 points for 
Maryland and Lee Brawley, a center, 
was close behind with 14. 

Forwards Burnie Smith and Spence 
Wright were outstanding on defense for 
the Terps. 

Clemson 68; Terps 49 

Clenison downed the Terps 68 to 49 
in a Southern Conference game. 

The contest was pretty much the 
Terp's during the first half, but the 
Tigers fought back and the final minutes 
found them out front by 19 points. 

John Edwards, Maryland's ace for- 
ward, scored first in the game that got 
off to a slow start, and it was two 
minutes before Clemson found the bas- 
ket, and three more before they found 
the mark again. In the meantime, Mary-

Coach Kehoe 


COACH JIM KEHOE'S fast step- 
ping Terp tracksters did pretty 
well for themselves in the Evening 
Star's all-star meet staged in the gi- 
gantic District of Columbia armory. 
Running against the greatest 'name' 
runners in the na- 
tional track and 
field set-up, Mary- 
land's Bob Palmer 
finished third in the 
Junior Board of 
Commerce Invita- 
tion Mile. Bob's 
time was 4' 21.6". 
Bob looked scared 
and admitted he 
was before the race. 
"I've watched these 
fellows run, but 
never thought I'd 
be in a race with 
them," he said re- 
ferring to the very 
classy field. Palmer, 
who already has scored well in a number 
of cross country races, is going to con- 
centrate on the mile hereafter and in- 
tends to continue as a miler and hit all 
the big meets after his college days are 

The Invitation Mile was won by George 
Wade, of Yale, with Browning Ross, 
Villanova's last year's winner, second. 
Behind Palmer was Gerald Karver, last 
year's champion. Not bad for Palmer! 

Bill Alexion won the District of 
Columbia A. A. U. 100 yard dash in 
ten seconds flat. 

Maryland's relay team won the South- 
ern Conference one mile relay champion- 
ships, outstepping Duke, North Carolina 
and V. P. I. George McGowan, Paul 
Ostrye, Mario Salvanelli and Ed. Matth- 
ews made up the Terp relay team.

Matthews romped home a winner in the 
Section B lace in good time of 3:23.3. 
At the Mellrose indoor games in New 
York. Coach Jim Kehoe 's men were in 
command all the way. 

They defeated Fordham, Holy Cross 
and Boston College. Their time was a 
sparkling 3.23.3 which betters by more 
than two seconds the fastest indoor 
mile relay time that has ever been run ■ 
bv a Maryland team. 

Terps Win Indoor Meet 

Tyson Cioanier, Maryland, won a

1624-14th STREET, N.W. 




MARYLAND'S 1949 boxing season 
was preceded by a bang-up 
intra-muicil tournament in which some 
seventy embryo mit-slingers got into 
competition. The intra-mural champions 
and others who showed promise were 
retained for fur- 
_ ^^^^ ther varsity school- 
^^^H ing. The finals took 
place in the Coli- 
seum after the 
Terp-Virginia Tech 
basketball game. 
Student interest 
was terrific. Benny 
Alperstein, great 
Maryland light- 
weight who twice 
won national titles 
and twice copped 
Conference titles, 
was referee, with 
Hotsy Alperstein, 
another of Mary- 
Coach Miller land's better boxers 
of yesteryear, and Head Coach Heinie 
Miller acting as judges. Assistant Coach 
Frank Cronin managed the Tournament 
and did his usual excellent job. 

At 125 Dave Schafer won by decision 
over Fred Carnesale. 

Redheaded Joe Dulin, with considera- 
ble class, had too many guns for Len 
Trout and took a decision over the lat- 
ter at 130. 

In the 135 pound division Dennis 
Focas carried too much punch for 
Johnny Jordan and won on a TKO. 

Albie Thompson, 145, took a very 
close decision over George Hauter. This 
was a split verdict and drew down some 
reverse applause. 

Paul Anderton, at 150, punched fast 
and often to take Tony DiMaggio for 
a TKO. 

Ken Davis unleashed too much power 
for Fred Pjerro at 155 and took a TKO. 
Bob Schroeder and Dick Barratte 
staged a hectic melee, with Barrette 
winning a very close split decision at 
165. Some of the boys and girls rhu- 
barbed the nod. 

Harry Schwarswelder won with some- 
thing to spare over Joe King at 175. 

The heavyweight bout was a Donny- 
brook with Herb Ashley flooring Pat 
Walker only to see Pat get up and stop 
Herb as the latter ran out of gas. Both 
looked like good enough material, \yith 
additional conditioning and schooling, 
for any man's varsity team. 

Bob Meets "The Keed" 

Bob Gregson, Maryland's current 
No. 1 middleweight, was recently intro- 
duced to the Original Kid Sullivan, 
veteran feather and lightweight star of 
years ago, one of the world's greatest 
in the 25 round days. The Kid is around, 
hale and hearty and he likes to talk 
about the days when he was the Uni- 
versity of Marvland's first boxing 
coach.' That was in 1910. The Kid. who 
was a stablemate of the immortal Joe 
Cans, then lived at Berwyn. 

"Things were different in those 
days?" suggested Gregson. 

"Yes," replied the Kid, "my boxing 
class was really a class. I taught them 
boxing but there was no such thing as 
an intercollegiate schedule. It was just 
a bunch of fine students, all of whom 
have really gone places, who wanted to 
learn how to box. They paid me $3.00 
for five lessons." 

Citadel 5; Maryland 3 

Maryland's ringsters got off to a bad 
start bv losing to The Citadel, 5 to 3, at 
Charleston, S. C. It was a terrific show 
and much closer— far much closer— 
than the score indicates. 

At 125 Al Glass, Maryland, boxed 
masterfully to turn in a win over Harry 
Hitopoulos, Citadel. Glass moved too 
fast for the cadet and landed the cleaner 

At 130 the Terps' Spencer Newton 
Hopkins won from here to there over 
Harold Shokes, Citadel. Hopkins scored 
a clean knockdown and after that 
Shokes held on too much. That made the 
score Maryland 2, Citadel 0, and that's 
not good for the visiting team's chances. 
At 135 Paul Kostopoulos, Maryland, 
met Timmy Wiggins, 27 year old boxer 
who has been the "pride of Golden 
Gloves tourneys in several states for 
ten years" and who holds "innumerable 
Golden Gloves championships." The 
quotes are from Citadel's press releases. 
Kostopoulos seemed to have earned at 
least a draw. The Terp bench thought 
he won. The official ballot had him 
behind by 1 point at the finish. 

At 145 Don Oliver, Maryland, faced 
George Campsen, another Golden Gloves 
product. The bout was tit-tat-toe and 
red hot for two innings. In the third 
Oliver seemed to have piled up quite an 
edge but the nod came up in favor of 

At 155 Maryland's Eddie Rieder was 
never more impressive. His opponent 
was Ray Heatley, another Golden Glover. 
The first round was devoted to straight 
boxing but second it was "Jenny, Bar 
the Door" as the Rieder battery opened 
up with full leather barrages from all 
angles. Heatley was soon on the floor 
from a succession of body smashes and 
right crosses to the jaw. He staggered 
gamely to his feet only to be flattened 
for keeps. Mean fellow, that Rieder. 

At 165 Bob Gregson, Maryland, lost 
the decision to Dale Mathews, a greats- 
improved boxer over last year. Gregson 
was game to the core, stayed on his feet 
and lost each round. Bob landed clean 
punches that would have dropped an 
ordinary boxer, but Dale Mathews is 
not an ordinary boxer. , , , ^ 

At 175 the Terps' Bob Smith lost to 
Bob Erdrich. It was not much of a bout 
to look at. Smith was behind in two 
rounds but definitely had an edge in the 
third. There have been worse draws. 

In the unlimited class Mont Whipp. 
Marvland's big fellow, lost all three 
rounds to Bill "Gunner" Ohlandt, of 
Citadel, a very flashy and much im- 
proved heav>"weight. 

Mathews and Ohlandt should go far 
for Citadel. Billy Williams, Virginia, 
was the referee. No judges. 

Terps 7'/:; Hoy as 2Vi 

Maryland took Georgetown (i' 
6% to 2*/2 winners over CCNY) i 
714 to 2 Mi score in a ten bout meet. 

The Hoyas, coached by Marty Gal- 
lagher, made a game and determined 
effort and the meet was harder fought 
than the score indicates. 

At 125 Al Glass, Maryland, stopped 
George Szabo in the third round. Glass 
moved fast and tossed a convincing 
right hand counterpunch. 

At 130 Maryland's Spencer Hopkins 
won by default when Tom Ward was 
six pounds overweight. 

At 135 Paul Kostopoulos, Maryland, 
had to go all out to win from Pat 
Palumbo. The latter, a game and willing 
lad, and was no soft touch. 

At 145 the Terps' Don Oliver had too 
much on the ball for Eric Hotung. 
Oliver scored heavily with body smashes 
and Hotung was a tired boy at the 

In the second 145 pound bout Mary- 
land's Barney Lincoln lost a close de- 
cision to Bob Charlton. That one seemed 
to be anybody's fight with Charlton 
forcing and Lincoln landing convincing 

In an extra bout at 153 Rowland 
Hyde, tough, rugged and aggressive 
Marylander, took the best Frank Tal- 
bert had to offer and, after being 
floored, got up and layed it unto Talbert 
to such an extent that the referee halted 
the thing on a TKO in round three. 

Eddie Rieder, Maryland's star 155 
pounder, who'll fight a buzz saw and 
spot it first cut, caught a bike rider in 
Jim Tully. Jim could run almost as 
fast backward as Eddie could foi-ward. 
That made for a bad fight and since 
you can't win 'em by running away the 
nod went to Rieder. 

Bob Gregson, Maryland 165er, caught 
a tough fellow in Georgetown's Pat 
Rule. Gregson won easily enough but 
Rule was a rugged guy who refused to 

Bob Smith. Terp 175 pounder, slugged 
it out toe to toe with Billy Rose, George- 
town football star and kayo puncher. 
There was little to chose between the 
two but Smith was coming strong at 
the finish to win. 

Mont Whipp, Maryland heavy, showed 
considerable improvement in dropping a 
close split decision to Ray Lan-ow, 
Georgetown's highly touted heavy. It 
was a slam bang bout with Whipp 
readv to stand toe to toe at all times. 

Jim Kelley, of Cumberland, was ref- 
eree with Bob Kilmartin and Joe Aran- 
off as judges and George Quigley at the 

LSU 6; Terps 2 

LSU deserved to win over the Terra- 
pin mitmen at Baton Rouge but not by 
the 6 to 2 score with which they were 
set back. (6 to 2 was also the score 
when Virginia boxed the Bengals in 
their Louisiana lair.) ^^ ,, 

When the Marylanders, trained, "up 
and drying out, stepped off of the plane 
at LSU they were advised that the 
bouts had been postponed one day. 

At 125 diminutive Al Glass, Mary- 
land, gave a masterful boxing exhi- » 


bition to hold his own neatly enoujjh 
with Pcewce Moss, LSU star. After 
three rouiuls of tine hi)j:h class boxin^r 
the ikike came up for LSU. 

Spencer Hopkins, Maryland, 130. 
running: into the first LSU's crew of 
southpaws, came back like a champion, 
in spite of a cut eye, to hand out a 
grade "A" lacinj? in the last round to 
M. A. Pastor, LSU. The LSU fellow 
was all in and lucky to be allowed to 

At 135 Maryland's Paul Kostopoulos 
dropped a very close decision to Buddy 
Bourgeois, powerful Bengal southpaw. 
It was an interesting go all the way. 

For no apparent reason Referee Bur- 
gess stopped the bout between Mary- 
land's Don Oliver and LSU's Burl Jobe, 
when the first round was only one 
minute old. Oliver, who has boxed 
plenty of good boys, was dumb founded. 
So was a great portion of the audience. 
Jobe had landed two solid blows to the 
jaw when, bingo, up went the LSU 
fellow's hand. 

Maryland's Eddie Rieder, at 155, 
picked up a tough one in Nelson 
Clothier, rugged, hard punching Bengal, 
in a bout that had the audience roaring. 
It was slam bang all the way. Clothier 
hit the deck in round one but came 
right back to fight it out on the line. 
Rieder, in excellent condition, physically 
and mentally, took the play away from 
Clothier by sheer guts and determina- 
tion. Eddie was all champion in there 
and that was enough to clinch this one 
beyond all argument. 

At 165 Lloyd Jones, another lefty, 
won after three hard fought rounds 
over the Terps' Bob Gregson. Jones was 
too strong and rugged and, although 
Gregson landed clean, solid punches, 
the LSU win was clear cut. It was a 
swell bout. 

Maryland's George McEntee, at 175, 
made his debut to lose a close and hard 
fought bout to LSU's Sam Allgood. The 
latter dropped McEntee in round one 
only to have the Terp, a few seconds 
later, score a smashing knockdown in 
return. McEntee, just recovering from 
a heavy chest cold that hampered train- 
ing, made a remarkably fine fight, tir- 
ing toward the finish. 

Maryland's 202 pound Mont Whipp, 
showed fine improvement although he 
lost a split decision to LSU's Jack 
Dyer. Just a bit more aggressiveness 
and a few more punches unlimbered in 
the final round should have swung this 
one for the Terrapins. 

LSU has a tough rugged club. Mary- 
land received many ringside and news- 
paper compliments for showing a well 
conditioned, well coached team. Team 
morale was high, each of the Terps 
giving the very best they had against 
big league opposition. 

Terps 5'/2 ; Spartans 2'/2 

Maryland showed plenty of class and 
power as the turnaway crowd of 5,800 
watched the Terp mittmen slash out a 
51/2 to 2% victory over highly touted

National title. 

Leading the parade was curly-haired 
Al Glass, Terrapin 125-pounder, who 
hammered out an unexpectedly easy de- 
cision over Ernie Charbonneau, the 
Spartans' N.C.A.A. champion. Glass 
staggered Ernie several times with 
smashing righthand punches to gain the 
ballots cast by one judge and the 
referee. The other judge called it a 
draw but it wasn't even close. 

A cut eye gave Maryland the decision 
in the 130-pound second bout when 
Michigan's Johnny Flynn suffered a 
gash after 55 seconds of the second 
round. Maryland's Spencer Hopkins 
stood toe-to-toe and battled it out with 
Flynn to get an edge in the first round 
and his aggiessiveness gave him the 
verdict when the bout was halted by 
the medico. 

In a wild swinging melee, Terp's Paul 
Kostopoulos, took a close decision in the 
135-pound division over Pat Dougherty. 

hard puncher from Michigan, with the 
referee calling it a draw and the two 
judges in favor of Maryland. 

The Spartans came up with their first 
winner in the 145-pound class where 
Chuck Davey, Michigan's other N.C.A.A. 
champion, used a snaky right jab to 
subdue Maryland's Barney Lincoln. The 
Spartan southpaw outclassed the cour- 
ageous Lincoln. In the third round the 
referee stopped it after 41 seconds of 
fighting. Lincoln made a game showing 
against the "class" of college boxing. 

Eddie Rieder, Maryland's Southern 
conference 155-pound champion, won in 
a vicious brawl with Chuck Sirhal. 
Rieder had to take a number of hard 
righthand punches to the head to get in 
close but, once inside, Rieder punched 
away savagely at Sirhal's middle loop- 
ing rights to the body and head. 

In the 165-pound class the Terps' Bob 
Gregson turned in a masterpiece of 
classy boxing to take a neat win. Ander- 


son tried hard but was outclassed by a 
tip-toe boxer. 

Michigan State's Sonny Grandelius 
took a split decision in the 175-pound 
class, defeating Bob Smith, Maryland. 
It was a run of the mill bout in which 
the decision could have gone either way. 

Maryland's Mont Whipp suffered a 
cut eye after one minute and 12 seconds 
of the first round with the Spartans' 
Art Hughlett and the bout was halted 
and called an automatic draw. Whipp 
showed great improvement over previ- 
ous bouts.

"I still am connected with the boxing 
game as a judge or referee in the Army 
boxing program. Boxing in Vienna is 
well organized and some fine mitmen 
are being turned out. There is some talk 
of even enlarging the program, appoint- 
ing a boxing commission, and setting up 
better procedure and rules."

A man should never kid himself that

even when he thinks he has a sure thing. 

A judge in Atchison, Kansas, was 
conducting a wedding ceremony. He 
knew all the answers until — he paused 
for the girl to say, "I do." She said, "I 
don't," and left. 

Driving along in a new car not long 
ago Mr. Pidey picked up a distinguished- 
looking hitchhiker. He had gone only a 
few miles, however, when he asked to 
be put down. 

"I live back where you picked me up," 
he explained. "You're my fourth ride 
today. You see, I'm buying a new car 
and this is the best way I know to try 
them all out." 

In response to a newspaper essay 
contest on "What I Want in My Post-

well-chosen word: "Me!" 

The good old days were those when 
there were two cars in every garage. 
Now it's two families. 

The mother and daughter were very 
busy with the wedding plans when the 
bridegroom-to-be called. He watched 
the preparations rather impatiently for 
awhile, until his future wife noticed his 
look of annoyance. 

"Darling, we have such a lot to do," 
she soothed, "and if we want to make 
our wedding a big success we mustn't 
forget the most insignificant detail!" 

"Oh, don't worry about that," mur- 
mured the young man, "I'll be there 
all right." 

In Hartford, Connecticut, a woman 
reported to police that a man had 
dragged her down two flights of stairs 
by the hair, choked her, and threatened 
to kill her. She gave a detailed descrip- 
tion of the man. 

Just routine, thought the desk ser- 
geant, "Don't worry, lady. We'll arrest 
him in no time at all." Her eyes widened 
in surprise. "But I don't want him 
arrested. Just find him. He promised 
to marry me." 

In the film Copacabana Andy Russell, 
watching Carmen Miranda execute a 
fiery South American dance, remarked 
approvingly, "Lots of pepper."

ed, "Nice shaker, too."

A forest ranger in Arizona frequently 
saw an Indian chief riding his horse up 
the canyon trail, his wife trudging along 
behind him. 

"Why is it," the ranger asked one 
day, "that you always ride and your 
wife walks?" 

"Because," was the solemn reply, "she 
no gottum horse." 

Driver: "It's great, speeding along 
like this. Don't you feel glad you're 

Passenger: "Glad isn't the word — 
I'm amazed!" 

Beating swords into plowshares is

The little old woman bent over the 
cherub in the cradle. "O-o-o. You look 
so sweet, I could eat you." 

Baby: "The hell you could, you

Two cockroaches lunched in a dirty 
old sewer and excitedly discussed the 
spotless, glistening new restaurant in 
the neighborhood which they had left. 

"I hear," said one, "that the refrigera- 
tors shine like polished silver. The 
shelves are clean as a whistle. The 
floors sparkle like diamonds. It's so 
clean ..." 

"Please," said the second cockroach 
in disgust, nibbling at a moldy roll, "Not

Registrar Preinkert Announces Figure Nearly 4,000 Over Last Year 

MOKE THAN 24,000 students on- 
rolled for courses .crivcn by the 
University durintr the 11)48-49 academic- 
year, to set a new high. Registrar Alnia 
H. Preinkert has announced. 

During- the two semesters, 12,393 
registered at Col- 
lege Park and 3,204 
in the Baltimore 
schools. Short 
courses and confer- 
ences enrolled 
6,030, summer 
school and other 
courses making- up 
the remainder. 

Last year the 
grand total of Uni- 
versity registrants 
was 20,456, com- 
pared with 24,374 
for this year. In 
1946-47. the total was 16,644. 

The Colleges of Art and Sciences and 
Engineering- showed decreases in en- 
rollment from last year's peak. A&S, 
which had 3,056 students last year, 
legistered 2,920 in the two semesters 
of this year, and Engineering dropped 
from 1,662 to 1,584. 

These losses were offset by the ex- 
pansion of the College of Special and 
Continuating Studies to embrace 1,520 
>tudents, nearly doubling- the 951 who 
registered in its initial program last 

The enrollment in the College of 
Agriculture has increased to 852, a gain 

Miss Preinkert 

of 100 students. Business and Public 
Administration increa.sed by 300 to 
2,231, Education by 250 to 1,115, the 
Graduate School by 200 to 1,726. 

Other colleges showed smaller gains. 
The College of Home Economics ha<l an 
enrollment of 401, one more than last 
year. Military Science, Physical Educa- 
tion and Recreation had 44 students, 
eight more than last year. 

In Baltimore, the Graduate School 
showed a decrease of 355, only 49 hav- 
ing registered this year. The Medicine 
and Nursing Schools showed slight 
losses, while the Dentistry, Law, and 
Pharmacy Schools made small increases. 
Baltimore Registrations 

The Baltimore registrations in the 
College of Special and Continuating 
Studies also set new records. Six hun- 
dred more students enrolled this year, 
making- the total 1,580. The College now 
has 3,100 registrants in Baltimore and 
College Park combineil, compared -with 
a 1,916 total last year. 

The number of Short Courses and 
Conferences offered this year was 39 
compared with 16 last year. Enrollment 
in these courses jumped to 6,030 com- 
pared to 3,974. 

The best attended short courses were 
the State 4-H Club Week and the Rural 
Women's course. More than 1,000 were 
enrolled for each. The Fire Service Ex- 
tension offered classes to 1,200 State 

Summer School in 1948 had 3,450 stu- 
dents, all but 224 enrolled here. Last 
year the total registration was 3,306. 

During 1947-48, Maryland's enroll- 
ment of 14,111 students studying for 

degrees was the twenty-fifth largest in 
the nation, according to the "World 


"There is no direct correlation be- 
tween a student's livinp conditions and 
his passing or failing," Geary F. 
Ei)pley, Dean of Men, said after a study 
of last .semester's male flunkees. 

Commenting on a breakdown of the 
330 failing students which represented 
4.3 per cent of the male undergraduate 
enrollment, Dean Eppley said that there 
was no general concentration of flunkees 
in any one type of dormitory or group 
of off-campus facilities. 

Although dormitory facilities are 
usually considered more crowded than 
off-campus quarters, men living in the 
dormitories, both temporary and perma- 
nent, had a smaller percentage of fail- 
ures than did any other group. 

Dean Eppley attributed good work 
on the part of proctors as a factor con- 
tributing to the low percentage of flunk- 
ees in the dormitories. He said that the 
mere fact that others are studying 
around him is an incentive for a student 
to do likewise. 

While it would be difliicult to deter- 
mine the relation of living conditions to 
the greater number of day students who 
failed, Dean Eppley said: 

"As to campus facilities, there is no 
positive proof that the type or construc- 
tion of a dormitory, or the fact that it 
is crowded or not has any direct bearing 
on students flunking."

Bond Bill Takes Care of Building 

By Robin Kearney 

( Diamondback) 

THK $5,0(51.500 bond bill, an addi- 
tion to the $13,203,140 already 
pranted to the University by the Mary- 
land State Legislature, was passed by 
the House of Delegates and sent to 
Governor W. Preston Lane. 

While the first $13,203,140 grant will 
be used for operational costs, the bond 
issue will be divided for construction 
purposes amonp the University at Col- 
lege Park, the University Hospital in 
Baltimore, Princess Anne College (the 
Negro division of the University on the 
Eastern Shore), and the University Ex- 
tension Services. 

President Harry C. Byrd waged a 
successful campaign for the part of the 
bond issue containing an allocation of 
over $800,000 for Princess Ann College. 
Some legislators were in favor of allot- 
ting the funds to Morgan State College, 
a Negro college near Baltimore which is 
subsidized by state funds. 

Record State Budget 

Altogether, the University's share of 
the record high state budget of over 
$157 million is $18,264,640. Before the 
bill granting the University these funds 
was passed, four attempts at passage 
of a bill, aimed primarily at the Univer- 
sity, requiring all State institutions and 
departments to submit detailed budget 
requests was defeated in the Legisla- 

The allotment from the bond issue for 
construction and improvements on 
campus is well over S2 million. Highest 
figure on the itemized list from the 
President's ofl[ice is $1,700,000 for the 
addition of Chemistry classrooms, 
teaching and research laboratories. 

Extension of girls' gymnasium facili- 
ties will receive $200,000, and appro- 
priations for completion of the women's 
dormitories is $180,000. 

New Labs and Classrooms 

Also high on the list is the sum of 
$1,350,000 for greenhouses, headhouse, 
and plant laboratories. 

The Engineering College will receive 
$200,000 for equipment and a new build- 
ing. New Physics classrooms, teaching 
and research laboratories will be given 
$100,000, and $75,000 is allotted for the 
Agricultural Engineering Building. 

The College of .Agriculture has been 
granted $105,000 for artificial insemina- 
tion barns and laboratories, poultry 
buildings and houses for teaching and 
research, and an apiary. 

A fund for moving the Agronomy and 
Botany laboratories to new quarters is 
set at'$20,000.

When jobs in radio shows began to 
interfere with his studies. Jim Stephens 
gave up a business major at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland to follow up a suc- 
cessful career in broadcasting. 

He appeared in "The Big Story" of 
reporter Robert Cour. of the Denver 
(Colorado) Post, dramatized over NBC. 
The story was based on several co- 
incidences that led to solving a local 
murder case. Mr. Stephens portrays a 
suspected murderer of the factual news- 
paper story. 

Radio actor Stephens was born in 
Baltimore, Md.. and lived there until he 
was 19. He was married at 18. Martha 
Stephens is from Beltsville, Md., and 
she helped her husband get established 
in radio. 

While studying at Maryland, he an- 
swered an ad in the Washington Times 
Herald and passed the subsequent radio 
audition. When he began to get calls to 
appear in radio shows daily, he decided 
to abandon college. His amateur radio 
work was done at stations WFBR and 
WBAL in Baltimore. 

.After Mr. Stephens was released 
from the army, he and his wife lived 
in Greenbelt.

President, Alumni Council 

TO THOSE who are generally inter- 
ested in the progress of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, and that includes 
all of us, I want to say how important 
it is for our general Alumni Association 
to continue its errowth and to consolidate 
the fine progress 
we have made in a 
little more than a 
year of our exist- 
ence. It is well con- 
ceded the greatest 
single factor in the 
promotion of alum- 
ni affairs is our 
magazine. As of 
today we have one 
of the best, if not 
the best, alumni 
magazines in the 
country. Those who 
are in a position to 
make comparisons 
support this state- 
ment. It is therefore essential that we 
continue to hold all our subscribers and 
at the same time secure a substantial 
number of new ones if we are to con- 
tinue to go forward. 

Our reason for laying so much stress 
on this factor at the present time is 


Dr. Bell 

two-fold: (1) The renewal date of a 
great many of our initial subscriptions 
is close at hand (2) we will soon have 
a great many new alumni as a result 
of the coming graduation. May I there- 
fore urge all of you to check your key 
letter and then renew your subscription 
when you get the renewal notice. We 
ask each of you to help in every way 
you can to find a new subscriber. One 
of our most ardent alumni members 
makes it a practice to ask every fellow 
alumnus whom he meets whether he is 
a "MARYLAND" subscriber. If this 
idea were followed by a substantial 
number, our success would be guaran- 
teed. Why not give it a try? 

The magazine will improve with the 
suggestions you make. If there are cer- 
tain features you do not like make your 
sentiments known. If there are items or 
sections which should be added you can 
help us get them by simply writing a 
few lines to the Alumni Association. We 
must not forget that the alumni maga- 
zine is a major yardstick by which our 
alumni activities are judged. It needs 
your continuing support and it needs 
the new subscriber which you can

Historic Rossborough Inn, buill in 1798, celebrates its ISOth Anniversary and now serves as Headquarters for the University of

Monsignor John K. Cartwright of St. 
Mathew's Cathedral, Washington, was 
the guest speaker at the "Maryland 
Day" convocation of students and fac- 
ulty of the University of Maryland on 
March 25 in Ritchie Coliseum. 

Formerly an annual event celebrating 
the founding of Maryland in 1634, the 
Convocation was discontinued during 
the war and was revived for the first 
time this year. 

Dr. H. C. Byrd, President of the Uni- 
versity, presided over the convocation 
which included a musical program, 
presentation of colors, and a formation 
of Maryland's thiee thousand man 
ROTC unit. 

Dr. Ernest Cory was chairman of the 
program committee. 

Maryland's first settlers landed on 
March 25, 1634 on what is now Blakis- 
ton's Island in Chesapeake Bay and 
there .soon founded St. Mary's City 
which served as capital of the Province 
for sixty years. The date has been ob- 
served since the founding of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. 

An address on "The Importance of 
Freedom's Responsibilities" by Monsig- 
nor Cartwright highlighted the day. 

According to Monsignor Cartwright.

Although Freedom is man's inheiited 
grant from God. Monsignor Cartwright 
said, it is not always honored by man. 
It is our duty to make a conscious effort 
to preserve these rights, he continued. 

"With our rights, comes responsi- 
bility. You have taken away the founda- 
tion of rights when you take away the 
ensuing responsibilities . . . Those who 
are in prison camps today have yielded 
to the dreams and responsibility of the 
minority, which results in no equality of 
goods, but in fear and shame," the 
guest speaker said. 

Preceding the convocation, at which 
University President H. C. Byrd offici- 
ated, a program of march music was 
presented by the ROTC Band under the 
direction of Frank V. Sykora, assistant 
professor of music. 

The invocation was given by Rev. 
Nathaniel Acton of St. Andrew's Church 
in College Park. 

In introducing the speaker, President 
Byrd cited him as "a great orator and a 
perfect exemplification of Christian liv- 
ing and good citizenship."

Under the title. "Baltimore: Some 
Economic Indicators." the Bureau of 
Business and Economic Research of the 
University of Maryland has published 
a study of changes in the economic and 
business welfare of Baltimore. Com- 
parisons are made with Washington, 
D. C, and Philadelphia, Pa., and the 
place of the Baltimore metropolitan 

area in its regional setting is analyzed. 
In issuing the study. Dr. John H. 
Cover, Director of the Bureau of Busi- 
ness and Economic Research, com- 
mented, "So intricate and diverse is the 
economy of any metropolis that efforts 
to discover its state of health require 
patient and extended diagnosis. Partial 
soundings are attempted in this initial 

Baltimore contains 62 percent of the 
civilian population of Maryland within 
its corporate boundary, and accounts 
for moie than 95 percent of the State's 
department store sales. So preponder- 
antly urban is the industry of Mary- 
land, that about 25 percent of income 
receipts of its citizens in 1947 went to 
persons engaged in manufacture, and 
only 4.4 percent to agriculture. 

Included in the study, which appears 
as the March number of the quarterly 
publication, "Studies in Business and 
Economics," are analyses of employ- 
ment, department store sales, news- 
paper advertising linage, electricity 
consumption, bank debits, relative cost 
of living and consumer prices, building 
and housing, life insurance sales, popu- 
lation growth, water-borne traffic, and 
air transportation. 


The Maryland chapter (.A.lpha Sigma)

The possibility of having more and 
better vegetables goes up in smoke 
when leaves are burned. Edward K. 
Bender, gardening specialist at the Uni- 
vei-sity of Mai-yland, makes this state- 
ment as he urges that leaves be used to 
improve the garden. 

The leaves can be used as compost to 

add organic matter as well as nitrogen 
phosphorous and potash to the garden 
soil. Using them in this manner will 
also improve the texture and water 
holding capacity of the soil and will re- 
sult in better garden crops next year. 

Another use is to allow the leaves to 
rot down in a pile and put them as 
mulch around tomato plants and similar 
crops next spring. 

HERE'S "DAN" &*: 

«.\ a particularly dark nijfht, all 
too t'asily renifmhL'red by some, 
a Ki'i", stocky man dressed in the uni- 
form of a University policeman set out 
on his tour of duty. It was a chilly, 
moonless nijfht, and he was filled with 
a stranpe sense of foreboding as he 
walked amonp the dimly lit campus 
buildings, testing, rattlinp, and probing 
the darkness with his flashlight. 

Approaching Morrill Hall, he pau.sed 
and looked with suspicion at a partly 
opened door. Peering cautiously into 
the murky interior, he saw a white 
sheet clearly outlining the form lying 
beneath it. 

Like Movie Mystery 

"Just like the movies," says Sgt. 
Wiseman, better known to Maryland 
students as "Dan the Cop." "I knew it 
was a corpse, but I had to investigate. 
When I lifted . . . When I lifted the 
sheet that covered the body, the eyes 
glinted bright even in the dark room. 
I was shaking plenty. After all, it could 
have been anyone. There were some 
mighty unpopular people around at that 
time. — That idea — yes, yes, I thought 
of that dean who had wanted to stop 
necking on sorority house steps. But 
they wouldn't! Or would they?

Dan Wiseman, pictured above, is chief of

one had told me beforehand that the

daver — a selected volunteer for zoology 
department experimenters. But," he 
adds ruefully, "the least the administra- 
tion can do is pay for the sleeping pills 
I've had to take every night." 

This would amount to quite a bill, 
for a long time has elapsed .since the 
depression . . . 

The depression forced this Hyattsville 
born and educated man to leave his 
trade in 1932 and join the forces of 
Maryland's State Department of For- 
estry. After four years in the trees, 
Dan, deciding that the forest was 
strictly for bears, happily turned in his 
axe and became the entire University 
of Maryland police force. He was our 
first cop. 

Struck By Truck 

However, what he thought would be 
an easy job turned out to be a back- 
breaking ordeal. One day as Dan was 
driving his car down . . . down the old 
road by the dairy building a truck 
swung out quickly in front of him. 
When the wheels stopped spinning Dan 
was in the hospital with a fractured 
spine. In addition, a leg which even 
today is two inches shorter than the

other, is a sharp reminder to the ser- 
peant of his tour of duty on the Mary- 
land campus. 

When the war came Dan's troubles 
seemed to multiply like the dues on a 
library book. Many of his police as- 
sistants, faced with probable induction, 
lapsed into an attitude of "I just don't 
pive a damn." Dan reflects dismally 
upon the deep concern once caused him 
by some carefree persons posinp as 
nature loveis in Calvert Hall. 
Just "Boys" 

The boys, as he lauphingly refers to 
them, evidently seeking the beauty of 
their own personal waterfall, plugfjed 
all the sinks and turned on the water. 
Upon Dan's arrival, the synthetic cas- 
cade was already pushing: down the 
steps. "Goinp up those steps," says 
Dan, "I felt like a salmon at spawning 

Dan has innumerable stories of 
campus pranksters, but there is one that 
shocked him even more than the water- 
fall pap. The bust of old Senator Morrill 
was reported missinp. Dan relentlessly 
pursued the case, and successfully cor- 
nered the thieves with the corpus delecti 
— or what was left of it. The jokesters 
explained to the irate policeman that 
they had merely been tryinp to elevate 
sape Morrill's likeness to even greater 
heiphts than he had known during his 
lifetime. As a matter of fact, the altru- 
ists thought it only fitting for the 
senator to rest at a no lower height than 
the top of the flagpole. As it transpired 
either Mr. Morrill or his benefactor be- 
came dizzy from such a meteorical rise 
up in the world and the bust soon re- 
posed in a multitude of fragments on 
the cold ground. 

Campus Big Wheels 

After Dan assured the culprits that 
it was impossible to join the pieces to- 
gether all the boys surrendered meekly. 
When the identity of the thi-ee villians 
is brought up, Dan first lowers his eyes 
and then vaguely hints that they were 
the editor of the Diamondback, the edi- 
tor of the Old Line, and the president 
of a prominent campus club. 

"Pranks and crime," asserts Dan, 
■'are less than ever before. Probably 
this is so because of the mature outlook 
the veterans take toward college." But 
even as he says this, a nostalgic look 
comes into his eyes, and one can't help 
wondering if he isn't remembering the 
forgotten cadavers, the stolen bust, and 
the flooded dorms of other days . . .

Spring Get-Together 
By Walter R. Beam, Jr. 

THE Board of Directors of the 
Engineeiing Alumni Association 
met on Thursday. March 24, to discuss 
plans for the Spring Get-Together, 
planned for May 14. Present at the 
meeting were Fred Cutting, president; 
Ed Powell; vice-president C. V. Koons; 
Bob Rivello; and Walter Beam. 

The Spring CJet-Together, annual 
social event of the Engineering alumni 
group, takes advantage of the balmy 
weather available in May, and is an 
opportunity for all the grads to get 
together, bring their families, and have 
a picnic style luncheon on the campus. 
It was decided this year to meet at the 
Rossborough Inn, with registration 
from 11 to 12 in the morning. Lunch 
will be served at the Inn, and after- 
wards tours of the campus may be 
made, or, since there is a lacrosse game 
scheduled for the afternoon, the engi- 
neers will get a chance to see one of 
Maryland's teams in action against 

Duke University. It is hoped that we 
will be able to have tickets for the game 
reserved and sold at the luncheon. The 
luncheon itself will cost $1.50 per per- 
son, or $2.50 a couple (an added incen- 
tive to bring the wives). 

It was decided, since the new build- 
ings of the Martin College will proba- 
bly not be completed by May 14th, that 
this meeting will not serve as a house- 
warming there. Incidentally, plans are 
already under way for a big affair early 
in the fall, when equipment will be in- 
stalled and the buildings in use. Any 
who wish, of course, may walk over and 
take a look at the buildings and see for 
themselves the growth of the College of 

Planned for the near future is a 
directory of Engineering College gradu- 
ates. All the available names will be 
listed, both alphabetically by year of 
graduation, and by geographical loca- 
tion. Since a number of the graduates 
have been 'lost,' we and Dave Brigham 
hope that by publishing this directory, 
we can add little by little until many 
more names and addresses are available. 

In order to appraise the graduating 
students of their Alumni .Association, 
there are several steps being taken. 
Graduating seniors are asked to fill out 
a sheet giving briefly their personal his- 
tory, and they will be given a free year's 
subscription of this magazine. 

For our spring meeting, a slightly 
reduced rate will he afforded members 
of the graduating class and seniors will 
be strongly urged to come, so they may 
become acquainted with the graduates 
of the preceding years. 

Invitations to the Get-Together will 
be sent out by the Office of the .Alumni 
Secretary, and reservations can be made 
by return postcard. All the graduates of 
the College of Engineering are cordially 
invited to this affair, and it is hoped 
that the meeting this year will be even 
a greater success than the one of last

Drugs and medicines constitute the chief stock in trade 
of every successful drug store. It is much better to 
establish the drug store as a health center than as a source 
of supply for anything and everything. There is an 
occasional store that fills few prescriptions and still makes 
money, but there is no store anywhere that enjoys a 
good prescription business that does not make money. 
It is therefore logical that druggists make every effort to 
get all the prescription business there is to be had. 
Along with competent professional service, high quality 
prescription merchandi.«e should be featured. The markets 
of the world offer no finer pharmaceuticals and biologicals 
than those bearing the Lillv Label. Lillv is our featured line.

The appointment of Mr. George Buck 
as director of the University Hospital 
in Baltimore was announced by Dr. 
Maurice C. Pincoffs, assistant to the 
president of the University. 

Mr. Buck, formerly superintendent 
of Mercer Hospital in Trenton, New 
Jersey, also becomes head of the Uni- 
versity's Department of Hospital Ad- 
ministration. He will succeed Harold A.

Council nu'etin^r, to be held in Atlanta, 
Ga., April 2;>. 

The National Educational Hill, passed 
by the state lej^islature, authorizes the 
state to enter into compacts with other 

The charter is otticially called the 
Repional Educational Compact and lists 
the names of the trovernors of 12 south- 
ern states anions its members. The or- 
ganization, with its headquarters in 
Atlanta, has as its objective the desire 
to take advantage of a provision in the 
United States Constitution which per- 
mits the states to make compacts among- 

Once in operation the bill would dis- 
tribute the costs of the more expensive 
types of professional education, such as 
dental or veterinarian training, among- 
the various states. 

It is believed that specific advantages 
would accrue to Negro students in the 
event that, as an example, a profes- 
sional school of veterinary training 
could be set up in one of the southern 
states participating, where none now 
exists because of lack of funds, lack of 
student demand, or some other reason. 


The University of Maryland was 
represented at the Washington and Lee 
bicentennial celebration by President 
Harry Clifton Byrd, on 12 April at 
Lexington, Va. 

The date was chosen for the academic 
climax of the Washington and Lee Bi- 
centenary because it has the longest 
continuing significance among memora- 
ble dates at the University. As an 
annual occasion for commemorating the 
gifts of George Washington and the 
Society of the Cincinnati in Virginia 
to the University, it is knovsTi as 
Washington-Cincinnati Society Day. 

Incidentally, on the same day in 
ceremonies on the campus, the Post 
Office Department issued a Washington 
and Lee stamp, the first ever issued to 
honor a college or university. 


Writes Patrick J. Carolan, Physical 
Education Department, Mohawk Col- 
lege, Utica, N. Y. : "Hope all is going 
well at Maryland. Have had the pleas- 
ure of recommending a number of our 
associated college students to Maryland. 
Several have been admitted. 

"My job as Physical Education in- 
structor and Track coach terminates in 
June. At that time the Associated Col- 
leges will end their existence, having 
relieved the veteran education program 
as intended in New York.

the beauty of the Maryland campus and 
relive some pleasant memories the first 
chance we get.

A&S Spring Rally— May 21 

Reunion. Luncheon, Lacrosse and 

Gym Troupe 

By Barbara Louise Love 

If you should see any of the members 
of the E.xecutive Board of the Arts and 
Sciences Alumni Association looking a 
little smufT, I'll let you in on the reason. 
We were able to prab the Johns Hop- 
kins' lacrosse frame as a focal point for 
our annual Spring Rally. The date is 
May 21, 1949, so jot that down on your 
calendar. Frankly, I thought it was a 
little nutty to be plotting a Spring Rally 
the third of February. With miserable 
snow all over the landscape I couldn't 
quite picture a warm sunny Saturday 
in May. My fellow Board members in- 
sisted on picking the date that early, 
and I had to go along with them. How- 
ever, when I learned that other Asso- 
ciations later came gunning for the 
same date, I looked as smug as the rest 
of them. 

All joking aside, we are very lucky 
to have this j)articular game. As you 
know, .Johns Hopkins has always had 
one of the leading lacrosse teams in the 
whole country, and Maryland exi)ects 
to have a very good team this year. We 
are planning to have a buffet luncheon 
served in the garden of the Rossborough 
Inn before the game. In order to have 


President Hersberger 

DEAR Arts and Sciences Alumni: 
It has been a real pleasure and 
privilege to serve as your President 
since the organization of the new Uni- 
versity of Maryland Alumni Associa- 
tion. The Association since its beginning 
has been highly successful and will be- 
come of increasing importance to you 
and the University. Your publication, 
"MARYLAND," a copy of which you 
are now reading, has taken its place as 
a real leader in its field. 

The General Alumni Council derives 
its strength from the individual college 
associations, of which ours is one. Your 
Board of Directors joins me in urging 
you to attend the College of Arts and 
Sciences Alumni Rally on Saturday, 
May 21. 

We are confident you will enjoy this 
opportunity to visit with old classmates, 
renew acquaintances with members of 
the faculty, and become more familiar 
with the functions of the As.sociation. 
Your committee has planned this outing

an opportunity to visit with the friends 
you haven't seen for a long time, try to 
get out to the Rossborough about eleven 
o'clock. There will be registration and 
an informal reunion until twelve, when 
luncheon will be served. The buffet style 
will make it possible to sit where you 
like and drag your chair up to .some 
gioup from your own class. 

The Board felt there should be some 
program, provided it wasn't speeches. 
Dave Brigham came to our rescue with 
an excellent suggestion, the Gymkana 
Troupe on campus. I blush to admit that 
I originally entered "Jim Cannon 
Group" in my minutes, but a leaflet on 
their activities straightened me and my 
spelling out. As you can see from the 
accompanying picture, they are very 
professional and finished in their acts. 
They have put on shows for many 
neighboring colleges and high schools 
with very enthusiastic audiences. They 
will perform several of their most popu- 
lar acts after lunch. 

We expect to have a representative 
turnout from all classes. The Board it- 
self has members from the classes of 
1923, 1924, 1926, 1927. 1932, 1936, 1942 
and 1944. These should make good 
nuclei for the various years, but if you 
are in one of the years not represented, 
please make an especial effort to come, 
because we want to cover the whole 
range from early 1900 to 1949 if pos- 
sible. The fun in these get-togethers 
depends largely on seeing friends in 
your own age group and renewing old 
acquaintances. If you will personally 
call some of your friends and tell them 
of our plans and of your intention to 
come, you will add to everybody's pleas- 
ure, including your own. The rally is 
also a good opportunity to meet some 
people who have similar interests. One 
of the Board members told of attending 
a recent Maryland rally in New York. 
He and his wife started chatting with 
another couple, and soon discovered 
they attended the same church in New 
Jersey, although they had never met. 

The Executive Board voted to invite 
the seniors from Arts and Sciences to 
the luncheon as well as alumni and Arts 
and Sciences faculty. We want them to 
become active members in the Associa- 


tion. If you will make a point of soekinjr 
them out when you're here, they will 
feel more welcome and interested. Per- 
haps you have a sistei- or brother who is 
praduatinjr this year; brinjr 'em alonjr. 
Of course, the wives and families of the 
alumni are always welcome. In case you 
want to know how much this will cost, 
here are the facts: luncheon about 
$1.50, lacrosse game about $1.20. You 
will receive a letter soon with the de- 
tails about reservations. We would ap- 
preciate it if you can jjet your reserva- 
tions in as early as possible. If you don't 
receive your letter, contact Dave Brig- 
ham at the University. 

There may be a special announce- 
ment at the luncheon which w-ill be of 
interest to all Arts and Sciences 
Alumni, but don't tell anyone I told you. 
Come and find out for yourself. 

At Camp Ritchie 

The Art School at Camp Ritchie, Md.. 
will be turned over to the University 
this summer. 

Courses will last six weeks and run 
concurrent with the art courses being 
taught at summer school at the Univer- 
sity. Courses will be offered in land- 
scaping, portraits, still life, composi- 
tion, and design. The art student will 
be permitted to carry a maximum of 
six credits. 

There is a limit to the number of 
students that will be allowed to attend. 
The Art Department stated that it will 
only be able to handle between 25 and 
30 students. 

Best Painting 

Harry G. Hunt, sophomore in A&S, 
won the Painting of the Month Club 
award for April with his landscape 
painting of "Land and Sea." The paint- 
ing was placed on exhibition in the 
lobby of the Administration Building. 

Hunt put in three semesters in the 
College of Engineering before becoming 
an art major. He has been active in this 
vocation for a long time, but only as a 
sideline until recently. During his en- 
listment in the Navy he did his painting 
on canvas "borrowed" from the sail 
locker. Hunt gave his paintings away 
not thinking he would ever turn to art 
as a means of livelihood and his paint- 
ings are now scattered throughout the 

.luska and Beatty 

Edward F. Juska recently wrote to 
Miss Edith Frothingham of the College 
Park staff to tell of the arrival of 
Douglas Leon on December 22, 1948. 
Juska, a 1925 graduate of the College 
of Arts and Sciences, is now a practic- 
ing attorney at Long Branch, New 
Jersey. His letter said, "Last Home- 
coming was my first in eight years and 
to be perfectly honest about it I got a 
real thrill. To say that I was astounded 
when I looked over the campus was to 
put it mildly. 

"William "'Chief Beatty and I have 
made plans to attend again this fall. 
Please advise my classmates that old 
Uncle Edward was responsible for an- 
other boy born last December."

versity of Chicago, was awarded the 
degrees of bachelor of arts and master 
of arts by the University of Arizona, 
and a fellowship by Duke University; 
also a doctor of philosophy by the Uni- 
versity of Iowa. He studied Spanish, 
F'rench and German. As a research 
analyst for the Works Progress Ad- 
ministration from August, 1935 to Sep- 
tember, 193(), he conducted studies of 
migrants, analyzed statistics and wrote 
articles for national distribution. He

Dear Doctor Byrd: 

As an alumnus of the University of 
Maryland, Class of 1927, I have read 
with unusual interest in the "MARY'- 
LAND," alumni publication dated 
March-April 1949, concerning the pro- 
posed new chapel that is to be con- 
structed on the campus. I believe that 
this will meet a long felt need, and at a 
time when the destiny of man's hope 
and freedom is resting in the balance, 
with only the basic and fundamental 
ideas of Christianity able to guide man- 
kind in his struggle against the dark 
and obliterating forces of Communism. 

It was indeed a pleasure to read of 
the many religious activities among the 
students at the University, and to ob- 
serve the liberal amount of space given 
by the "MARYLAND" to this religious 

I feel that you have been the guiding 
force and the dynamic personality in 
this recent and most commendable 

The youth of today, who will be the 
leaders of the world's destiny tomorrow, 
must be mentally, physically, morally 
and spiritually alert and qualified. 
Those of us who attempted to guide and 
assist the moral and spiritual welfare 


of i)ur Arnu'il Forcos duriiijr tho late 
war, and who today feel compoUod to 
continue, are most appreciative of the 
efforts of educational leaders like at the 
University of Maryland. 

With kindest personal jji'^etings, and 
wishing you all success in your program 
at the I'niversity of Maryland, I remain

School o( 


Dr. Dave Danforth, '15, had colorful and 
lonjt career in baseball. A story of two 

By Gardner P. H. Foley 

W«THEN the name of David Dan- 
^^ forth was called at the 1915 
Commencement of the University of 
Maryland, a friend stepped forward to 
accept by proxy the D.D.S. degree of a 
Texan who was to become one of the 
most famous jji'aduates in the long his- 
tory of the University. On completion 
of his course requirements for gradua- 
tion Danforth had received permission 
from Dean Timothy Heatwole to report 
to the Louisville Colonels of the Amer- 
ican Association for his fourth season 
in professional baseball. 

Born in Granger, Texas, on March 7, 
1890, Danforth was the son of a physi- 
cian who often was obliged to travel by 
horseback to reach his patients. The 
father died when David was two years 
old, leaving a widow with the valiant 
task of rearing six children. Because of 
his impressive mound record with the 
local high school nine, the lad was 
sought by several colleges. During the 
1910 and 1911 seasons he pitched for 
Baylor's crack teams. In 1911 Baylor 
won the Texas Collegiate Champion- 
ship, with Danforth winning all ten of 
his games and hurling a no-hit, no-run 
game in the climactic contest of the 

From Baylor Danforth went up to 
the big time when he joined Connie 
Mack's Athletics in the fall of 1911. 


"Dandy Dave" Danforth in While Sox 

Here was a rookie making the great 
jump from a college nine to the best 
i)all club in the world, the team that 
went on to beat a great Giant club 
in the world series. With the famous 
trio of Bender, Coombs and Plank 
showing signs of fading under the pres- 
sure of overwork, Mack greeted his 
new pitcher with an assignment to the 
bull pen. One of the greatest moments 
in Dave's career came in the eighth 
inning of the game, the first big league 
game he had ever seen. With the score 
tied 1-1 and with White Sox players 
on second and third, Danforth was 
called to the mound to face the heavy- 
hitting Ping Bodie. He struck out Bodie, 
and the side was retired when the next 
man hit to Eddie Collins. As the Ath- 
letics got two runs in that inning young 
Danforth made a dramatic debut by 
winning in his first chance against big 
league batters. Because of his excellent 
showing under fire Mack sent his Texan 
rookie into several other games of the 
waning season. 

In May of 1912 Danforth was sent to 
Baltimore in a trade. During his three 
seasons with the Orioles he had a record 
of 40 wins and 39 losses. The Oriole 
teams of 1912, 1913, and 1914 included 
a number of unusually good minor 
league players, such as Cree, Egan, 
Parent, Maisel, Twombley and Ruth, 
who played smart baseball under the 
highly capable managership of the fa- 
mous .Jack Dunn. Young Danforth 
worked hard dui'ing his Baltimore years 
to strengthen his pitching armamen- 
tarium. To his good fast ball he added 
a slow ball and a curve ball. 

August of 1914 was an eventful 
month in Danforth's career. Because of 
the invasion of Baltimore by the Fed- 
eral League Dunn was forced to sell 
several of his best players. Danforth 
was sold to Louisville, where he made 
a 6-5 record. In his first appearance 
with the Colonels he licked Cleveland 
4-0, fanning 9. Shortly after his trans- 
fer to Louisville Dave returned to Balti- 

-116 1- 

more to marry Miss Florence Oliphant. 
As an Oriole, Dave had boarded in the 
home of the bride's parents. 

The achievements of Danforth in his 
1915 Louisville season are matters of 
baseball, as well as local history. With 
his pretty wife to inspire him and with 
his mind set on a return to the big 
leagues, the big Texan burned up the 
American Association with a record of 
18 wins and 17 losses. Referred to by 
the fans as "the Saturday matinee idol" 
and as "Dandy Dave" he earned his 
great local popularity by turning in 
some amazing pitching performances. 
In the last six weeks of the season he 
struck out 135 men in 95 innings. In his 
last four games his strikeout totals 
were 10, 15, 18 and 16. On September 
12, before a large Sunday crowd, he 
set a new American Association record 
by fanning 18 in defeating Kansas City 
8-0. On his next appearance, three days 
later, he got 16 Saint Paul batters on 
strikes. His fine work attracted the at- 
tention of big league scouts and at the 
end of the season the recently gradu- 
ated Maryland alumnus was signed by 
the White Sox. 

Among the hundreds of men with big 
league records only a few have been 
graduate dentists. This writer knows of 
only five: Doc White, a famous White 
Sox pitcher; Doc Prothro, who man- 
aged the Phillies; Dick Hoblitzell, a 
good first-sacker; Eddie Farrell, a 
shortstop with the Yankees; and Dave : 
Danforth. The explanation for that 
small number of dentist-ballplayers is 
that it takes an intelligent, conscien- 
tious, and persevering man to combine 
the study of dentistry with playing ball 
from early spring to late fall. Alway.>^ ^ 
regarded as a smart player, Danforth 
early in his sports career gave earnest 
thought to the future that lay beyond 
his playing days. Having decided to 
study dentistry he was fortunate in 
being able to attend a dental school in 
Baltimore while with the Orioles. With 
the cooperation of his classmates and 
with the fatherly encouragement and 
aid of Dean Heatwole and of Jack 
Dunn, his manager, young Danforth 
was able to meet his dental school re- 
quirements under diflicult conditions. 
In each of his three school years, he 
came to Maryland from a hard season's 
work on the diamond. In two of the 
years he had to be absent several weeks 
from classes and clinics while in camp 
with the Orioles. Jack Dunn, anxious to 
help a player who demonstrated ambi- 
tion and gumption, assigned Dave to a 
private room so that he could study 
effectively and comfortably the lectures 
that his classmates sent him daily. 
When the Orioles returned to Baltimore 
Dunn permitted him to attend classes 
on the days when he was not scheduled 
to pitch. In the spring of his senior year 
Dave received permission from Louis- 
ville to remain at school through the 
training period and the first month of 
the season. 

With the White Sox in 1916 Dave ap- 
peared in 28 games, pitching 99 inning;;. 
His record, chiefly in relief, was 5-5. 
For the 1917 .season he had an excellent 

12-5 record. Hi' developed into the relief 
mainstay of the eliib, appeariii); in 50 
pames. The White Sox made the world 
series that year, but with ITrbati Faber 
and Eddie Cicotte n'oi'iK' jrreat Runs. 
Dave appealed in only one inninu' of the 
series. During most of his four years' 
tenure with the White Sox Danforth 
had several remarkably pood players 
behind him. men like Sehalk, Gandil. 
Felseh, Weaver, Risberjj-. F]ddie Collins 
and Shano Collins. 

Near the end of the 1919 season Dave 
was sold to Columbus of the American 
Association, but received a full share 
of the world series cut. Refusing to re- 
port to Columbus he came to Baltimore, 
where he joined the crack Baltimore 
Drydocks team. So g-ood was this club 
that the Baltimore fans clamored for 
a series between the Drydocks and the 
Orioles, one of Dunn's best teams. In a 
bitterly contested series of seven games 
the Drydocks astounded the baseball 
world by taking the Orioles 4 games to 
3, with Danforth rising to great pitch- 
ing heights as the winner of three 

As a result of two good years with 
Columbus— 13-12 in 1920; and 25-15, 
with a last-place team, in 1921 — Dan- 
forth was sought by twelve major 
league clubs. The Saint Louis Browns 
landed him by making one of the most 
interesting trades in baseball history : 
11 men for 1, a whole team for Dandy 

Up with the Browns in 1922 for his 
third big league trial, Danforth had a 
record of 5 wins and 2 losses before 
Lee Fohl sent him to Tulsa. As the 
Browns lost the pennant by one game, 
the baseball writers accused Manager 
Fohl of having tossed away the cham- 
pionship by his unwise handling of Dan- 
forth, who pitched Tulsa to the Western 
League pennant. 

Recalled by the Browns Dave had two 
excellent years with that club: 5-2, in 
1923 and 16-14, in 1924. It was during 
the 1923 season that Dave became in- 
volved in a situation that all but put 
an end to his baseball career. A south- 
paw with good control and a good head 
he had an easy sweeping motion and a 
fine assortment of stuff. An abnoi-mally 
strong grip enabled him to put a sail on 
his fast ball. When he was at his best, 
his sailer was very hard to hit, a fact 
that accounts for his strikeout records. 
Back in 1915 he began to encounter 
criticism of his pitching. The batters 
who were fooled by his dazzling pitches 
accused him of using illegal methods. 
Periodically, especially during his best 
efforts, Dave was the target of man- 
agers and players who griped about his 
"wrinkle ball," his "emory ball" or his 
"mystery ball." 

Plagued by the riding of opposing 
teams Dave Danforth exhibited re- 
markable courage in rising above the 
mental handicaps imposed upon him. 
During the 1923 campaign the criticism 
of Danforth came to a climax. Umpire 
Moriarty banished him from a game 
for the alleged use of an illegal delivery. 
Suspended for ten days, Dave bitterly 
resented the action of Moriarty and the

IfUKue officials. His teammates were 
solidly l)i'hin<i him. Because Manaper 
Lee Fohl refused to join with his play- 
ers in protestinj; the suspension owner 
Phi Bail released him and appointed 
Jimmy Austin to manatje the team. 
Austin announced that he would use 
Uanforth as soon as his suspension was 

Then came the jrame of games for 
Dauntless Dave, as he was affection- 
ately called by the fans. Pitching under 
terrific pressure and subjected to very 
discouraging handicaps, "the gamest 
man in baseball" won his case. Ban 
Johnson, president of the American 
League, sat in a box where he could 
watch Danforth closely. Umpires Billy 
Evans and George Hildebrand inspected 
his movements closely and tossed out 
every ball that might possibly be criti- 
cized because of color or condition. Dur- 
ing that game Danforth used 58 balls. 
With all the mental and physical as- 
pects solidly against him he faced a 
hardhitting Yankee team, one of the 
best in baseball history: managed by 
Miller Huggins and with a lineup of 
Witt. Dugan, Ruth, Meusel, Pipp, 
Ward, Scott, Schang, and Pennock. 
Although defeated .'^-l. Dave held the 
Yankees to .*? hits. Ban Johnson and 
every one else who saw that game were 
agreed that he had not used any illegal 
pitches. Baseball men throughout the 
country were convinced of the truth of 
the accused pitcher's statement: "I 
never threw an illegal ball in my life." 

Frank G. Menke wrote in the Base- 
ball magazine in 1924: "Danforth is a 
great pitcher and might have been one 
of baseball's greatest if all through his 
major years he had not been cursed 
with the suspicions of illegally tamper- 
ing with the ball." 

Between 1924, his last year in the 
majors, and 1932, Dave pitched for sev- 
eral minor league clubs. But there was 
a little more glory to be achieved in 
those fading years of an amazingly 
long pitching career. With Milwaukee 
in 1925, 1926 and part of the 1927 
seasons, he moved on to New Orleans, 
where he had records of 10-11 in 1928 
and 8-11 in 1929. Relea.sed by Dallas 
early in 1930 he caught on with Buffalo. 
Pitching for the Bisons against Roches- 
ter, the league champions, Dave struck 
out 20 batters, a record for the league 
that still stands. His 1931 season was 
divided between Buffalo and Chatta- 
nooga. In 1932, having been sent from 
Buffalo to Scrant<)n, Danforth decided 
that his days as a good pitcher were 
over; so he returned to his home in 
Baltimore and the prospect of opening 
an office for the practice of a profession 
that he had held in reserve for seven- 
teen years. 

Anticipating the day when he would 
retire from the baseball wars, Dave 
Danforth decided in 1927 to get ready 
for that day. By putting in a year of 
hard work in the various clinics of the 
School of Dentistry. Dr. Danforth was 
able to revive his dormant skills, brush 
up on techniques and observe the many 
changes that had occurred in dentistry 


since his graduation twelve years be- 
fore. From 1928 to 1937 he served on 
the faculty of his alma mater as an 
instructor in Clinical Operative Den- 
ti.stry. In June of 1933 he opened his 
office at 3501 Greenmount Avenue, 
where he continues to enjoy a pleasant 
and successful practice. 

A modest, affable man. Dr. Danforth 
loves to talk baseball. He resides at 635 
East 34th Street, within a block or two 
of the Stadium, the present home field 
of the Orioles.
